Sabrena Turner Will Provide A Better Future For Our Kids - And Response

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I’m Ben Phillips.  I reside in District 7, have two small children and I so desire to have a successful district for their future.  Paving the road for their success requires passion today from you and me. It's not sacrifice, it's life as a parent, love.  Who we chose in the commissioner role and all political positions has significant impacts on the future of our children.  I've witnessed it in my 37 years.  

So, what about your children? A vote for Sabrena Turner is a vote for a new middle school at East Hamilton and a new school for CSLA which are both needed but need paid for in a way of business development in a way of business success. That's what Sabrena will do. 

What about our children’s safety, our children’s future? We need someone in District 7 that can run it like their District 7 real estate business- at the top of mind of all her peers and industry, enough to be awarded a leadership award in a field of some 1,150 licensed agents right here in Chattanooga. That's right, Sabrena did that.  That is why I trust her to make the financial decisions that will impact my children, not someone that doesn’t have proof of being at the top right now.  Safety and success starts with leadership. She has something special in her and she answered the call to serve her clients, be it Real Estate Agent of the Year.

This is my district's answer. It's not politics, it's a clear choice for a better future.  I’m inspired by Sabrena’s delivery of result to my mortgage clients.  She treats them with respect like she will treat your family, our family, our community, a great community that I call District 7. She will lead us to a brighter future for our children’s sake, and their children’s sake.

I love my hometown. I love moving forward and seeing our community thrive. Won't you stand with me and give Sabrena Turner your support?

My name is Brendon Severs and I'd like to provide first hand insight regarding candidate Sabrena Turner who is running for the District 7 County Commission seat in Hamilton County.  Sabrena is my sister and she was also my real estate business partner for five years from 2005 to 2010.  I would like to speak to you regarding her work ethic, integrity, and her overall character. 

Sabrena is an extrovert who has never met a stranger.  She could befriend a billionaire or a pauper and treat them the same.  Sabrena has a compassionate heart and the will to see things through.  As a real estate agent, she has been an active leader with the Chattanooga Association of Realtors.  I have seen her dogged determination and steadfastness on full display as she has completed waning real estate transactions that most would have considered lost causes.  When Sabrena sees and inkling of hope, she does not accept no for an answer. 

Sabrena cares for her clients and people in general.  I have seen her counsel and hug clients who were going through tough times personally and financially.  Sabrena has a way of comforting people by finding the silver lining and reassuring them that things will turn out okay.  She has a magnetic personality just like many other candidates.  The difference is Sabrena always follows through on her promises.  She is motivated to serve the people and not herself. 

As many of you know, Sabrena has been active in the local community.  She can multi-task like no one I have ever seen.  If you are looking for a candidate who is tireless, honest, accessible, intelligent, and compassionate, then Sabrena Turner is the obvious choice.  I could not have chosen a better sister or a better business partner.  Let her make you proud as your County Commissioner just as she has made me proud to be her brother.
