Congratulations To Sabrena Turner

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Congratulations to Sabrena Turner in her strong victory in the Republican Primary Tuesday.

Sabrena conducted herself in an excellent way throughout her campaign to win a seat on the Hamilton County Commission.

As I said months ago when I wrote a letter endorsing her in the Republican Primary, we need her voice, her experience and her views in the deliberations of the Hamilton County Commission.

The election is not over. Sabrena still needs your support and vote in the general election in August.
Please join me again in voting for Sabrena and electing her to the Hamilton County Commision.
