Sabrena Turner Leads By Example

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I would like to encourage the voters in Hamilton County, District 7 to vote for Sabrena Turner for county commissioner in the upcoming election.  

I have worked with Sabrena many times over the past seven years on various projects benefitting the East Brainerd community. I have been impressed with her dedication to the causes at hand, her leadership skills, and her devotion to our area.  

Sabrena leads by example.  No job is too large or too small for her to tackle. Her sharp business skills and knowledge of both the possibilities and potential problems make her the ideal candidate to represent us.  

Please join me in electing her for this position.
