How intimate, you will be alone...just like the rest of your life. This will be an incredible boost for Streit when the public sees that your not a woman and that if elected no children will be able to legally get within 50ft of your office. The more you talk Turner, the more votes Streit will get.

When I read on the Herald News site that the moderator had given money to Turner that told me this was not a fair debate and also he never asked Striet until after he annouced it. What is all that about? Nobody does that unless they think they are the top banana. Evidently he thought he could set up striet and he would take it. Not so! Striet is having his own town hall meeting and running his campaign the way he wants. This guy tries political stunts and it did not work. In fact even the Herald News said that he called him the day after it was all set up..this is so rude! But it is expected. Striet being the gentleman he is said he would debate him if they would consult with one another and come up with a time, place and a moderator both had chosen not just Turner.Com e to Striet's town hall meeting at the lhs community room on March 26th and ask him anything you want. That is truly fairness and that is the way he is! He will not be bullied like Turner tried to do with this. The Herald News mad him look stupid. Vote for Steve but come and ask him questions..anything...he is there for you. Thanks. Lockport needs him and we need his development plans and vision for our future. Turner has had his chance and we do not like what we have gotten. We are way behind everyone!

Good story, but since I am not a Turner fan, I would like to know where you got your information on the children idea. The not being a woman is true, and that is why he always reluctantly didn't want his picture with the campaign, he even held off on the city's website for quite some time. He also is the only alderman who doesn't have a biography. Guess were supposed to be content with his picutre as a man.

So please let us know about the children facts and where that is, lets not resort to using false attacks like the HEAD COWARD does.
Remember the whole chamber issue and blaming Steve for one example. Putting the Canal Days in jeopardy with all that nonsense.
Mr. Rakowski should be ashamed of himself, yes it was great they did a wonderful job, if you don't like what the chamber is doing, then volunteer and work with the chamber on correcting a problem. No it was easier to join the HEAD COWARD wagon of blame Steve, even though he was not on the board during all this financial troubles. So stick with facts for that it what the HEAD COWARD and crew cannot stand.

Yes, the Herald News exposed Turner for what he is.

Talk about a stacked deck-set up the date, time and location and then get one of your campaign contributors to moderate!

Turner looks really bad on this one. Who is his campaign manager? Why would they let him step in a pile of doo doo like this? That campaign manager should be fired.

Is a Turner campaign shake-up in the works? They say that campaigns that restructure like that so close to an election is an indicator that the campaign is in trouble.

It being said that Turner will fire his campaign manager. There is one problem, it won't be until after April 9th. Then the people will have fired Turner who is his own campaign manager.

Here's another plan that backfired on Turner:

In his infinite wisdom he actually came into my neighborhood last weekend and passed out his propoganda.

That inspired me and my neighbors, who promptly called the Streit Campaign and requested yard signs for Streit.

The more people see this clown, the more people will support Streit!

Keep up the good work Turner-)ou're running a sterling campaign!
