This just keeps getting worse.
I picked up one of Mr. Turner's new campaign/business cards from the GOP booth at the Washington County Fair today and noticed that it's out of compliance with state law on campaign materials.

He's missing the required disclaimer and, unless you look pretty closely, it looks like he's claiming he already is the District 1 Alderman. I haven't seen that Mr. Turner is registered yet either, although he's announced his candidacy on his website.
I'm sure Mr. Turner is a perfectly decent guy, but the rules are for everyone.
Mr. Turner, check out the state statutes. Conservatism needs to demonstrate that it believes in the rule of law. Fudging the law like this gives your opponents the opportunity to make public observations about you.
