Sabrena Turner Is The Candidate Of Substance

Monday, April 7, 2014

I am a life-long resident of District 7 and I am voting for Sabrena Turner as my next county commissioner and I hope that you will too.  

I served under Sabrena's leadership two terms when she Chaired HubFest at Heritage Park. It did not take me long to realize what a person of substance she is. She led by example. She earned the respect of every person under her care. She had answers to our questions. She returned our phone calls. She had regular meetings and most importantly she sent every person on the team individual personal, handwritten thank you cards. Everyone of us became and remain her close friend.

Sabrena takes interest in and prepares herself for every area of her life which involves the people of District 7, Hamilton County, the city of Chattanooga and much more. Owning Sabrena Realty; being elected realtor of the year 2012 by her peers; serving on several important Chattanooga Association of Realtors Boards and committees has given her such an advantage of the needs that our district is facing. I thank her for all the trips to Nashville and Washington she made on our behalf--I call this substance. 

Please come to one of Sabrena's speaking engagements or debates to experience first-hand that she is the candidate of substance. Vote Sabrena Turner.

Roy Exum: Oh Yes, I Loved West

One of my most beloved friends died early Saturday morning at the age of 67. Then again, West Oehmig’s only brother – King – died a couple of years ago at 63 so it wasn’t by happenstance I remembered Abraham Lincoln’s famous line: “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.” Here are two brothers who lived larger than any other pair I can ...

Red Bank Stays Unbeaten With Romp Over Hixson

Mandi Munn has been around a lot of Red Bank softball in her life, both as a player and now as the head coach for the Lionettes, but she probably hasn’t been involved with many games like the one her team played at home Tuesday afternoon. Facing the Hixson Lady Wildcats in a District 6-AA contest, the Lionettes more than batted around in three of their four at-bats and they took ... (click for more)

Bradley Holds Off Ooltewah 3-2 In District 5-3A Play

That's in addition to being the Bears' starting second baseman. Cross entered Tuesday’s District 5-3A game against Ooltewah in the seventh with Bradley nursing a shaky one-run lead. ...
