Following the money

To the editor,

With the election for La Plata County commissioners quickly coming to an end, let’s be sure we understand which Jack Turner is actually running. It is not the well respected and popular Jack D. Turner who was elected twice as a La Plata Electric Association Director. The Jack Turner running for commissioner is in fact the self-proclaimed “independent” John R. (Jack) Turner, whose campaign signs are increasingly placed right next to Trump campaign signs. And one more thing about Jack’s proclaimed “independence,” a review of the publicly accessible Colorado Secretary of State’s accounting of donations for his campaign lists an incredible number and amount from Republicans. Yes, we the voters of La Plata County need to understand who is really supporting the “independent” John R. (Jack) Turner.
