Sabrena Turner Is The Candidate Of Substance

Monday, April 07, 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.

Process

My favorite TreeHugger once commented I'm a process sort of guy. One might suppose that's true, even though there are situations in which we must lower our center of mass to keep a firm base, lean forward, put our head down, grab a cheek in each hand and, like Teddy Roosevelt, scream "Charge! (but not with credit cards)" as we move forward con mucho gusto. However, unless one is ... (click for more)
