I met John Turner shortly after he moved to Walla Walla. John Turner is a compassionate, driven and highly motivated individual. I believe these qualities are essential to be an effective sheriff in Walla Walla County.
His compassion will assist him in hearing and addressing the specific needs of the people of this county. His drive to want more for this community and the Sheriff's Office is unending.
His motivation and ideas are creative and contagious. He is someone who sees the opportunity to make a difference in his community, and has the qualifications to do so.
I have been an educator in the Walla Walla Valley for several years. My line of questioning for John Turner may have been different than others due to the frequency in which I work with at-risk youths in our schools.
When I asked my questions of John Turner, he listened. He then shared specific plans as well as how to implement them. I am refreshed and excited about the plans he has for increasing safety in schools. He also has strategies to combat Walla Walla's gang issues. I applaud his forward thinking and innovation with these difficult and complex topics.
John Turner has the educational background and experience to move this county into the future.
I would like to commend John Turner for taking the high road during this campaign. Please join me in supporting John Turner for Walla Walla County sheriff.
