Westfield Democrat vying for county council seat


Gardiner Bink wants to see change.

The lone Democrat seeking a seat on the Hamilton County Council, Bink said he believes Hamilton County government has been run by one party for too long.


“I think the residents of Hamilton County are ready to have a different perspective on who is ready to represent them and push the important issues causing much greater dialogue than what we have been getting,” Bink said. “I am going to bring a different perspective to the council, bring greater transparency and insight into the operations and agreements in the council.”

The recent coronavirus pandemic has helped shape part of Bink’s campaign. He said he hopes to help the county and its residents recover.

“I want to make sure that our county is prepared to not simply fight but to also recover from the current epidemic,” he said. “Once we are safely through it, I plan to make a large push to further improving our defenses and responses to fighting future epidemics with much greater agility and providing our first responders, as well as our medical staff, with the proper needs to handle these situations. It’s not just enough to deal with these things when they come up, we need to work to greater prepare and anticipate future epidemics.”

Bink graduated from Lancaster Catholic High School in 2009 and from Xavier University in 2013 with a degree in business administration. While at Xavier, he majored in finance and entrepreneurial studies and received a Credentials of Readiness certificate from Harvard Business School Online, where he studied business analytics, economics for managers and financial accounting. He has worked in accounting and as a business consultant but now is a children’s author.

Bink is married to Tara, and they have a 2-year-old son, Gardiner IV. Bink will not face a challenger in the June 2 primary election, but will face the Republican nominee in November.
