Sabrena Turner, who owns her own realty firm, has announced her intentions to run for the office of Hamilton County Commission, District 7.

Larry Henry has announced he will run for Circuit Court clerk rather than his longtime District 7 seat in next year's election.

Ms. Turner is the owner of Sabrena Realty Associates and active in community issues including zoning, defense of property rights and community events.

She is a member of the board of directors of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors and serves on the Tennessee State and Local Governmental Affairs Committee.

She said she is "focused on making county government more efficient and accountable to keep taxes low, addressing critical infrastructure needs and public safety concerns, and investing in public education and workforce development."

She stated, “As a resident and small business owner, I have been personally involved in a number of important issues impacting property rights and zoning in District 7. I have had the pleasure of representing many property owners as a Realtor in my district and beyond. As a result of these experiences, I have come to know, appreciate, and respect the citizens of District 7. I have developed many lasting relationships with fellow residents and business owners in District 7 and I am proud to call this district my home.

"I care deeply about the issues affecting the residents of my district and want to see this district continue to improve and build upon the momentum and unprecedented growth that has occurred over the past ten years. For this reason, I am announcing my candidacy for the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners for District 7. With the support of the people of District 7, I am confident that we can move our district forward together.”

Roy Exum: Way 'Over The Line'

Every day last week a Chattanooga woman sent me a press release for a “Recess Week of Action,” which was the greatest example of “an exercise in futility” that I can recall in recent years. I absolutely refuse to attend, write, or publicize such a group of admittedly-questionable political agitators. Please, I have never seen anything like this! Sometime soon, I suspect, the truth ...
