Mailer criticizes Warner

His opponent, Bill Harvey, said he had nothing to do with postcard that accuses Warner of supporting Obamacare

A postcard mailed recently to an unknown number of Baker County voters calls into question County Commission Chairman Fred Warner Jr.’s record as a Republican and implies his political philosophy is more in line with tenets of the Democratic Party.

 The postcard, which is not connected with the campaign of Warner’s opponent, Bill Harvey, does not list any author or sponsor.

Oregon law does not require a sponsor’s name to be printed on such a document, said Tony Green, a spokesman for the state.

Warner, who is seeking his fourth term as the only full-time member of the three-person Board of Commissioners, was elected as a Democrat in the three earlier elections. He changed his affiliation to the GOP last year.

The postcard might mark a clear demarcation line between how local political races functioned in the past, and how at least this race is playing out now.

Harvey said he had not seen the postcard.

“It had nothing to do with me. I didn’t even know it was coming out,” Harvey said.
