Realtors Back Fairbanks For County Commission District 1

Monday, July 28, 2014

Randy Fairbanks, the GOP nominee for the District 1 seat on the Hamilton County Commission, has received the endorsement of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors

Randy Durham, chairman of the organization’s Political Action Committee Trustees, said, “This endorsement is in recognition of our belief that Randy Fairbanks is the most qualified candidate to represent District 1 on the Hamilton County Commission.  His record of service to our community and background as a successful business owner have proven worthy of our support and encourage District 1 residents to vote for him during this important election.

“We believe Randy’s principles and values most closely embody those for which the Realtor community stands and that he will be an effective voice for our members as well as the thousands of citizens in District 1 who desire to enjoy the American Dream of home ownership.”

Mr. Fairbanks said, “I am thrilled and truly honored the Realtors in our community have placed their confidence in my ability to represent their interests and those of District 1 residents on the Hamilton County Commission.

“Public education and crime are two critical concerns for anyone going through the home buying process.  As Commissioner, I will always advocate for issues that I believe will improve public safety within District 1 and across Hamilton County as well as work to strengthen our public schools, especially by expanding our Vocational programs and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum so all children can be prepared to enter the workforce or attend college upon graduation.”
