Chip Is A Winner For District 2

Saturday, July 14, 2018
With a 27 year military career followed by a successful chief executive officer business career, I am a strong advocate of making an informed and decisive decision.  Based on both of my careers, beyond a doubt, Chip Baker is the most qualified person to serve as the next Hamilton County District 2 Commissioner.

Several traits that are absolutely necessary for success in life, Chip exhibited at a very early age.  These traits include initiative, drive and the desire to achieve at higher levels; this is shown by Chip, going beyond high school, to achieve advanced degrees, which demonstrate his respect for education and the opportunities that education can open.  Another important trait that Chip possesses and has demonstrated is experience.  As a Hamilton County School Board member for 12 years and with 66 percent of the County budget spent on education, he has the hands on experience to ensure that the peoples’ tax dollars are spent wisely.  A final trait that I find in Chip is his strong love for our community as shown with the Chattanooga Unite Tribute for the Fallen Five that brought are entire community together along with the continual growth of the Riverbend Festival, which was voted the Number One Best Local Event and Best Special Event by the people.

Chip will use these traits to make the best decisions for District 2.  With proud enthusiasm, I support Chip Baker for District 2 and respectfully request your support.  Chip is a winner for District 2!
