John Turner confident as voting deadline nears

After six months of campaigning, John Turner enters Tuesday’s primary confident he’s done everything he’s needed to do to win.

“I’m still very confident we’re going to win,” Turner said. “We have seen such strong support in our telephone and our door-to-door efforts that it’s been very encouraging.”

Turner, a former president at Blue Mountain Community College and a retired colonel in the Marine Corps, is running against Cove businessman Greg Barreto for the House District 58 seat left vacant by outgoing Rep. Bob Jenson, also of Pendleton. House District 58 encompasses communities in Umatilla, Union and Wallowa counties.

Turner said he’s spent much time on the campaign trail listening to the needs of the voters and understanding what’s important to them.

“I’ve been on the campaign trail for the last six months, it’s a long and steady process of introducing yourself to voters and listening to them and trying to understand the issues that they are interested in,” Turner said. “At the same time, trying to get the word out on those programs you favor and want to support and want to get started to work on for Eastern Oregon. It’s been more of a marathon, I think, and now we are down to the last few days.”
