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.

Collegedale's Wreck Problem

Re: Speed Limits Being Lowered On Main Collegedale Thoroughfare  I just read your story on Collegedale lowers speed limit for main thoroughfare.  It's funny the city claims they will have TDOT put up dangerous intersection signs, because last summer when it was stated in a story (possibly not by your company) that they were dropping the speed limit from 55 to 50 on ...

That was the case at Silverdale Tuesday afternoon where the Lady Seahawks were hosting the Baylor Lady Red Raiders. Silverdale had gone to Baylor on April ... (click for more)
