During the debate (by Chamber of commerce) Mr Cooper was specifically if he was fit for duty, he evaded the question. It is a very honest and legitimate concern. Is he fit for duty or not? If so why has he not worked for two years now?

campbell_rd 6 days, 1 hour ago on Letter - Sadly, money seems to buy elections today

I believe the numbers reported as spent on the campaign were misleading by a few candidates. If money spent is really a big issue, then maybe an actual audit done on both Sheriff candidates to see the true spending would help. Regardless of the money spent I personally have witnessed Sheriff Turners actions and commitment to the community over the last three years. I also interact with most of his staff regularly and they are quite happy, except for a few who happened to want to be sheriff. To me there is only one choice for Sheriff this November. Our great Sheriff, John Turner.

campbell_rd 1 week, 2 days ago on At this time, what's your thinking on the race for Walla Walla County sheriff?

Why not do an accurate poll, one that honestly picks the feelings of the voters? This poll that allows people to vote many times and doesn't allow some to vote at all is pretty worthless.

We can do better than this in Walla Walla.

campbell_rd 3 weeks, 5 days ago on Letter - Time for Cooper and Blackman to ‘step up’

Sheriff Turner is respectful, knows the law extremely well (very important for Sheriff) and was present at all of the public debates. Where were the other two candidates at the debate earlier this week? Absent again, Mr Blackman was working (evidently didn't try to take time off) and Mr Cooper didn't show and didn't even respect us enough to say why he couldn't attend. Cooper and Blackman are always complaining instead of making constructive criticism. I voted for Sheriff Turner I hope you will too, but even if you don't vote for Sheriff Turner at least vote for someone.

In other words, vote for anyone but Sheriff Turner. I already voted for the most qualified, John Turner. Whatever you do please cast your vote.

campbell_rd 1 month, 1 week ago on Letter - Auditor Karen Martin safeguards our tax money

I'm really not stirring trouble, but I would like answers to a legitimate question. I simply want the best qualified person for the county in all positions. Is there political bias present in the auditors office? Did she repeatedly state that Sheriff Turner overspent his budget? If those facts are incorrect then she can have my vote. I have no bias or at least I try not to, we have have some at some point. I have no doubt that Karen Martin is a great person.

I was there personally Sheriff Turner said that he would and does enforce all laws. All three committed to enforcing existing laws. He did say that he would urge the county to delay setting up sales and distribution. Sorry try again!

All three candidates said they would enforce existing laws, so what is your point?

Once again the replies are mostly mud-slinging against John Turner. Sheriff Turner was honest and answered all questions. Tom Cooper completely evaded the question about being fit for duty (listen for yourself)! Sheriff Turner really knows the law (the other two were baffled about a recent law). I tried to be impartial and listened carefully to all the three candidates, they are all great people. However, when my safety and the community are at stake I want the most qualified. John Turner is that person. For those of you that discriminate against him of the issue of who has been here the longest. Let me ask you a question (I overheard it last night). "When you go to the Emergency room, do you want only a local person to treat you, or do you want the most qualified? I know my answer, the most qualified. John Turner is the most qualified!
