Sabrena Turner Is The One In District 7 - And Response

Thursday, May 1, 2014

As a 19-year-old who cares about the community and, most importantly, our schools, I support Sabrena Turner for County Commission in District 7. After attending a debate, I spoke to, or tried to speak to (I was ignored by some), all of the candidates and Mrs. Turner was the only one who came up to me first.

Following our conversation, I could feel her passion for the district and the vision she has for it to continue its growth. I could tell she cares not only about our schools, but, most importantly, the students, who are usually forgotten within politics.  I have since gotten to know Mrs. Turner and I have to say: she is a woman of principle and a born leader. I would urge anyone who lives in District 7 to go out and meet the candidates. I have no doubt that, like me, you’ll see Sabrena Turner is the candidate for District 7.

Nearly four years ago, our community faced one of its great challenges when the city of Chattanooga tried to annex portions of District 7 into the city boundaries. This effort was derailed thanks to the efforts of many in our community, but one of the key leaders on the front lines leading the good fight was Sabrena Turner.
 
This is why many in our community are supporting Sabrena today. When it mattered most, Sabrena clearly demonstrated that she has the necessary passion, leadership skills and drive to unite a community and accomplish a common goal. This is the type of leader our community needs on the County Commission.  What our district does not need is a long-time, appointed government bureaucrat or someone that has little record of leading on any of the major issues affecting District 7 during the past 10 years. 
 
As an owner of a successful real estate business and very active civic leader, Sabrena has the right experience, knowledge and skills to lead our community on the key issues that matter to our community.  I also believe Sabrena will be a strong advocate for our concerns on the County Commission – one that will truly advocate for the needs of the taxpayers, neighborhoods and business community. 
 

If you truly want to change the status quo at the County Courthouse, I encourage you to vote for Sabrena Turner as the next District 7 representative for the Hamilton County Commission.
