To the Editor:

U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley’s town hall meeting was held in the John Day Senior Center on Friday, July 6. Sam Palmer introduced himself and said that he had won the primary election for county commissioner. That is incorrect.

If no candidate gets at least 50 percent of the votes plus one more, then the two top contenders go to the general election in November. The race is still open.

Gordon Larson and Sam Palmer were the two top contenders and will be on the ballot in November.
