Chip Baker’s common-sense leadership has benefited our Hamilton County community for over 26 years. Chip initially moved to Hamilton County to manage Erlanger Children’s Hospital, and he hasn’t slowed down since.

During the past 18+ years, Chip has served as director of Friends of the Festival. Under Chip’s leadership, his team including 1,000’s of volunteers has grown Riverbend to the top 10 pecent of all American festivals entertaining over 350,000 attendees each year while generating substantial economic ($30 million per year), marketing and branding benefits for our county. In addition, Chip has served on the Hamilton County School Board for 12 years and knows how to collaborate with people to solve problems and achieve common goals.

More important than his experience and service record, Chip is a man of faith and a loving husband/father to his wonderful wife and four terrific children. 

We encourage you to join us in voting for our friend and trusted neighbor, Chip Baker, for our next Hamilton County District 2 Commissioner.
