Prove any of these rants and then maybe people may listen to you. Personally it seems obvious to me that you don't know John Turner.
What a fake story, how long ago was this? Also how is this applicable to the re-election of Sheriff Turner? Those of us who know Sheriff Turner and work with him in any capacity value all his skills greatly!
Great letter John, we sincerely hope the current staff including yourself and our great Sheriff are retained. As a citizen of Walla Walla I really appreciate the work you have done and hope you will remain out of retirement. It's up to the voters now.
UB is really reaching deep to discredit a great man. We need some truly unbiased reporting, we aren't getting it here. The UB continues to bolster Tom Cooper only by trying to discredit Sheriff Turner. Once again I'll ask what does Cooper have for future plans? He sure hasn't made anything clear to me or many others at the few debates he actually attended.
The story should be simple - Signed by Bieber, the quote says: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sheriff John Turner over the past 2 1/2 years on local law enforcement and community issues. I have always known John to be honest and approach his duties with the highest level of integrity. Sheriff Turner works hard to make the Walla Walla Valley safe and improve the quality of life for all of us.”
End of story.
Very nice article, clear and concise. Time to think more about real qualifications and elect the most qualified person - Sheriff John Turner.
My reply was hasty but with all the nasty anti Turner remarks coming from these forums it was a knee jerk reaction. That said, I still don't understand the people why are standing behind a man (Cooper) who has no future vision, terrible work ethic and won't even show up for all the debates. He attended two of the four that I know of, I personally attended three. Cooper has had ample time (especially with his time off over the past 18 months) to study current case law, yet he stumbled many times of simple law questions. Such as his constant promise that he would immediate hire an Hispanic deputy. He can't it's illegal , he must hire from the list provided! Has anyone considered that is Cooper is elected what are his immediate plans? Fire everyone who didn't support him? I don't say this lightly, I say this from his demeanor at the debates (because that is the only place I ever see him, he is never at the Sheriff's office). I for one want a Sheriff that will keep our county safe, Sheriff Turner has earned my respect and the respect of many other.
I noticed that there are no replies to these honest and sincere questions, especially by Cooper or the UB staff who are supporting his election.
I am paid up through the end of the month. Nice try though. As for the UB being fair, I think you must be reading another UB. It's obvious to me that two things are happening: 1> UB is owned and operates as part of the Seattle Liberal mindset. 2> They have a vested interest in getting Cooper elected and I think that is unhealthy and unethical.
I just cancelled my subscription to the UB. I wonder why they are pushing so hard for Tom Cooper? Seems extremely suspicious to me. This continues to be very poor and biased reporting. At least the UB will burn in my fireplace so it has some use.
