The front-page articles on the race for sheriff make my heart sad. They are so negative against Sheriff John Turner.
The articles are mostly about how Barry Blackman and Tom Cooper were victims of Sheriff Turner’s actions, not on how they can do the job better than Sheriff Turner.
Is this who you want for sheriff?
They are not informing us on how they can do the job better than Sheriff Turner. You are only a victim if you allow yourself to be one.
People are always not going to like everything you do and when someone new comes in with new ideas someone is going to be mad. I suggest you go to Sheriff Turner’s website and hear what he has to say. I saw no condemning of Mr. Cooper nor Mr. Blackman, just facts.
Please look beyond the stories and chose what kind of sheriff you want for Walla Walla and the surrounding area. Do you want one who has extensive training for the job or someone who is mad?
I am sure Mr. Cooper and Mr. Blackman are good men and it sounds like they feel victims of Sheriff Turner. I am sure someone feels I have victimized them also as I have to realize I am only a victim if I allow myself to be.
