Union money an issue of contention

House District 58 candidate Greg Barreto is bothered by the fact that thousands of union dollars are being funneled into John Turner’s campaign.

A Political Action Committee, Oregonians for Rural Jobs, was filed April 21 and has since donated $15,700 to Turner’s campaign.

Rep. Bob Jenson, who isn’t seeking re-election, is the director of the PAC, according to the Oregon Secretary of State website. Jenson, the longest-serving member of the Oregon House, has endorsed Turner for his seat.

Barreto has criticized Turner for taking union money but now says he’s bothered that Turner’s trying to hide it under the guise of an innocently-named PAC.

“It’s the way it was funneled through,” he said.

Another PAC, Citizens for Political Education, donated $15,000 to Rural Jobs, according to the Secretary of State website. SEIU’s website shows that PAC is associated with the SEIU.

“We have never made any kind of attempt to hide the fact that we’ve accepted donations from unions,” Turner said. “We have a very broad base of support.”
