From reading the letters to the editor, it seems to me that john turner is playing the victim by hia supporters promoting his view that the UB is prejudiced. They report what they see and it is clear where there is smoke there is fire!

It was obvious that he was emotionally shaken telling the story of Deputy Estes and it is no secret that Mike Humphreys was very supportive of Tom's candidacy. What other deceased person are you referring to Grandma?

Spot on Chas and there are several other expenditures paid by the county relative to labor practices that could have been avoided.

Turner is losing any credibility he may have once had with his intimidating and bully-like actions. There is no doubt he is qualified for the job but his twist of words and situations to benefit his candidacy or position tend to speak volumes of his character.

Campbell_rd, it would behoove you to contact Greg Tompkins, Perry Dozier or Gregg Loney and listen to what they have to say about Mr. Turner's shell game with the budget. You can reach them at 524-2505.

He wants voters to believe he has roots here! He was raised in California! Just because his ancestors are from here, doesn't mean he has the reverence for the community or the history in Walla Walla. Yes, being a 'local' may be attractive to some voters but being 'truthful' wins every time! He is always stating he (and his wife for that matter) are 4th generations 'on the farm'. They don't live 'on the farm' ~ either farm! Just another example of his smoke & mirrors and shell games he loves to play! I sincerely hope people aren't fooled by this outsider!

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook tonight! Turner's remarks regarding qualified Hispanic candidates can be heard at around the 27:00 minute mark! You can slide the video to the 27:00 minute mark if you don't care to listen to the entire debate.
***I kept hearing the last few days about the Touchet , Wa. debate that was video taped so i went to the post about the debate and watched for myself and could not believe what I heard. I played it back again at the 27:00 minute area and sure enough hear for yourself what Sheriff Turner has to say about why we dont have any Hispanic officers working for the sheriffs office. " You cant wave a magic wand and create a qualified Hispanic candidate" Doesn't the WWPD have several Hispanic officers working for them? The WWPD must have waved the magic wand!***
