We Need Chip Baker's Experience

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

We need Chip Baker's experience for Hamilton County Commission District 2. 

When I first met Chip Baker he was a hospital administrator in charge of TC Thompson Children's Hospital, he then moved on to be the executive director for Friends of The Festival.  Chip has also been a small business owner and was a representative on the Hamilton County School Board.  Chip has the experience of running and managing complex organizations, creating and overseeing budgets. As the leader of Riverbend, Chip has experience coordinating multiple government agencies within the city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County to make sure the festival is a fun and safe environment for everyone who attends. 

During his tenure on the school board Chip was a great asset to all the communities and schools he represented.  Chip was very active in his district gathering information from constituents but also keeping everyone informed on issues related to the district or HCDE as a whole. Chip was a leader in getting the new Signal Mountain Middle School and High School built.  He brought together the towns of Signal Mountain and Walden, he worked with the Hamilton County Commission and also within the School Board to make sure a high school on Signal Mountain became a reality.

Vote for Chip Baker.
