aurora 1 month ago on Sheriff's candidate forum video available

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!

Interesting that Spinks receives an endorsement from Ed Freyer, the former subordinate and friend of John Turner. If Spinks were to be elected, Turner would have someone in the Auditor's office who who be in a position to hold him less accountable for his spending practices? Better be careful who you sleep with!

@ CoachG First, I haven't seen any negative campaigning by Mr. Cooper. Secondly, it appears to me that Mr. Turner is in violation of the law by even speaking of Mr. Cooper's injury. I reiterate my statement in my previous post, no one writing on this thread has knowledge of the full story. As far as Mr. Turner having to defend his position . . . many elected officials in our county have managed their offices over the years without EVER writing one special editorial in the UB! Just sayin . . .

Interesting how opinionated people are without knowing both sides of an issue. I am tired of an elected official who constantly feels like he must 'justify' his actions/position by writing special editorials in the paper.
