Sabrena Turner, Republican candidate for District 7 seat on the Hamilton County Commission, announced she has received the endorsement of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors (GCAR).

Representatives of GCAR said, “This endorsement is in recognition of our belief that Sabrena Turner is the most qualified person for this position, and that her record of community service and advocacy for the rights of property owners has proven worthy of selection by the voters.”

Ms. Turner is the owner and lead broker at Sabrena Realty Associates in East Brainerd and was named the 2012 Realtor of the Year by GCAR.  She is a graduate of Ooltewah High School and received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bryan College.

GCAR representatives continued, “We are certain that Sabrena’s principles and values most closely embody those for which the realtor community stands, and we believe Sabrena will be an effective voice for our members as well as the thousands of citizens of District 7 who desire to enjoy the American Dream of home ownership.”

As a founding member of Hamilton County Residents Against Annexation, Ms. Turner was an active leader in the fight to protect property rights against the threat of forced annexation by the city of Chattanooga in 2009.  In addition, she has been an active voice on multiple zoning issues in the community. 

Ms. Turner said, “I am honored to receive the endorsement of my peers.  Great schools and low crime levels are paramount in the home buying process.  As commissioner, I will be committed to strengthening education and advocating for public safety issues within District 7 and across Hamilton County.”

Ms. Turner is seeking the Republican nomination for District 7 Commission being vacated by Larry Henry. The county Republican primary election is Tuesday, May 6, with early voting taking place from April 16 to May 1.
