A food strike by inmates at the prison in Connell entered its sixth day Wednesday as a state official held a series of meetings with prisoner representatives.
Karen Takacs, spokeswoman for the Washington Department of Corrections, said Rob Herzog, the assistant secretary of prisons, is at the Coyote Ridge Corrections Center and held several meetings with what the prison system calls “tier representatives.”
Those are inmates chosen to represent each housing unit in discussions with prison managers.
