Relationships questioned during candidate forum

The Republican candidates for Oregon House District 58 sparred over campaign contributions Wednesday night.

Greg Barreto and John Turner were in attendance for the Union County Republican Candidate Forum. 

Though no mention was made of a $30,000 donation to Barreto’s campaign from Loren Parks, a question from the audience asked whether Turner would be returning money donated from unions. Barreto had announced earlier in the day a plan to return the Parks donation since it had become a distraction from real issues, he said in an email.

“Mr. Barreto has made an issue out of the fact that I’ve accepted some union money. That took place because Mr. Barreto, in spite of just talking about representing the whole district, refuses to meet with the unions,” Turner said.”If you want to represent the whole district you need to learn that those unions are more than half Republican and they’re conservative Republicans.”

Turner noted that he worked with union representatives while president of Blue Mountain Community College and that meeting with them doesn’t mean he agrees with them.
