Please join me in re-electing John Turner for sheriff of Walla Walla County.
Whoever did the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days website did the public a great disservice.
I began working for the Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 as a jail officer. I have been a reserve deputy sheriff since 2001.
The neighbors who live near or on Highland Road would be more open to a city pool if the city would consider a new street.
I, my husband, some family members and friends attended “Fiddler on the Roof” on July 11. Wow, what an evening of great entertainment!
Sue Flemming’s personal attack on me is utterly ridiculous. She obviously did not investigate Tom Cooper’s background.
At a recent Walla Walla Tea Party meeting held before the primary elections, a former Los Angeles police officer — Sheriff John Turner — proudly announced that he was one of the first county sheriff’s in Washington state to prohibit holding anyone in a county jail who had been identified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as being an undocumented immigrant.
Having spent the better part of 25 years as a resident of Walla Walla, I consider it a privilege to serve the people as a deputy sheriff. Although I have only been with the office since 2012, and some may deem my voice as that of “the new guy,” I have spent the last decade of my life serving in the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps on both active duty and in the reserves.
Immigrants from all nationalities have been seeking refuge in America from oppression and certain death. So why aren’t we giving refuge to the Christians about to be slaughtered in Iraq?
You have senseless killings going on all over the world in Syria, Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Ukraine and Afghanistan, just to name a few.
