Sabrena Turner's Endorsements Come From District 7

Friday, April 25, 2014

I have been following the District 7 Commission race, and I have noticed one very stark difference in the candidates running: endorsements.  Smartt has a list of well known endorsements, but after some thinking I realized that the overwhelming majority of them do not even live in District 7.

Then I hear the radio ads for Sabrena Turner with endorsements from small business owner Ben Phillips, conservative crusader Mark West, and well respected Dr. Keith Dressler.  Dr. Dressler probably did your kids or grandkids braces.  There are several other great endorsements for Sabrena, like realtor Linda Brock and homebuilder Dexter White, just to name a few.  The difference? Sabrena’s endorsements actually live in District 7. 

I’m not sure about you, but I’m going to give my vote to the candidate that listens to and is endorsed by my neighbors in District 7. I encourage you to vote for Sabrena Turner.
