Randy Fairbanks, the GOP nominee for the District 1 seat on the Hamilton County Commission, announced on Wednesday he has received the endorsement of the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga.
"The Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga is pleased to endorse Randy Fairbanks for District 1 County Commissioner. Randy has owned and managed a successful accounting business for nearly 30 years and continues to have an active presence in the community and involvement in various initiatives. We believe his experience and views are more in line with the goals we have as an organization,” said Ms. Teresa Groves, executive director.
Mr. Fairbanks recently won the Republican nomination for the District 1 County Commission seat against longtime incumbent District 1 County Commissioner, Fred Skillern. For the upcoming General Election on Thursday, Aug. 7, Mr. Fairbanks will be the only candidate on the ballot for the District 1 County Commissioner race.
“I am truly honored to receive this endorsement today from such a professional association as they are providing homes and good jobs – from carpenters and plumbers to designers and painters – for many families in District 1,” said Mr. Fairbanks. “With Volkswagen making a significant investment to expand its Chattanooga plant, our community will continue to experience significant growth and development for years to come. As a small business owner, I understand the challenges small businesses, especially local home builders, face day in and day out when dealing with local and county governments. This is why I’m committed to working with other Commissioners to ensure county government is doing everything possible to foster a positive business climate that encourages growth and economic development to take place in District 1 and throughout Hamilton County.”
