Rep. Kevin Parker to co-host ‘Understanding threats in our community’ forum Saturday, Jan. 22, in Spokane

6th District lawmaker to partner with Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in reaching out to concerned residents 

In the wake of a bomb being found along a parade route in Spokane recently, and with the tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, Rep. Kevin Parker is joining Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich to host a forum entitled “Understanding threats in our community” for local residents this Saturday, Jan. 22, at 10 a.m. The town hall meeting will last an hour and allow people to share their concerns and ideas on recent events.

“I’ve had many people contact me with their concerns about the threats in our community, and now is a good time to bring everyone together to talk. As a survivor of the shootings at Columbine High School in 1999, I have learned it is essential we come together to talk about the safety of our community, and look to the future for new ideas and solutions,” said Parker, R-Spokane. “I will also have information to share on some public safety measures I am working on in the Legislature. I know Sheriff Knezovich will provide great insight for folks on what we can do as a community as we move forward.”
