Sabrena Turner Thanks The Residents Of District 7

Monday, August 11, 2014

I want to extend a special thank you to the residents of District 7 that voted for me and put their trust and confidence in my ability to lead our district forward.  

As I said throughout my campaign, I will always be committed to focusing on what truly matters, and that's the people of District 7.  

During the past year, I have met with thousands of people while canvassing door-to-door and listened to their concerns and hopes for our community. This dialog is important for all elected officials, and I strongly encourage anyone to call me if they have concerns or issues with county government. I want to be a true voice for our entire community – a voice that will always promote accountability, efficiency and transparency within our local government.  

I am truly honored and thankful to have your support, and I look forward to being your advocate on the County Commission.
