"Walla Walla -- known for wheat, wine, and weed." That was the sad comment I overheard from the audience at a Walla Walla City Council meeting earlier this year. Our way of life and doing business in the Walla Walla Valley is changing with the legalization of marijuana.
Initiative 502 brings massive "unintended consequences," ranging from the safety and security of our families and businesses to land use and zoning codes. As the chief law enforcement officer for Walla Walla County, Sheriff John Turner has demonstrated the experience, training, professionalism and foresight to navigate the turbulent waters of I-502. Please join me in supporting Turner's re-election.
