2018 Committees of Council

Amy L. Hitch, Councilwoman

Phone: (859) 391-9801

I am the proud mother of 3 wonderful children. I am a 1990 graduate of Campbell County High School and a 1996 graduate of Northern Kentucky University where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts. My professional career has revolved around the banking industry. I have proudly served as the branch manager of US Bank in Falmouth for the past 12 years.

I am an avid volunteer with many organizations in the community. Beginning in June, I will be serving as president of the Falmouth Rotary club. I actively volunteer at the schools with my children’s activities, and I teach religion class with St Francis Xavier Church.

I am excited to serve the citizens of Falmouth as a city council member. As a longtime resident of Pendleton County, I have a passion for improving the city. I believe that we are in the middle of a very important time of growth and the decisions that we make today will have long reaching effects on all residents as well as people that will look to move to Falmouth in the coming years. I feel that it is our duty as city council members to encourage the growth of our city, but also to manage it in a way that insures we have the resources available to maintain the high level of service that citizens now enjoy.

If you have any concerns or compliments, I would like to hear from you. You can contact me through the city email, Thank you everyone for your support!

I have had the pleasure of serving a Mayor of Falmouth and two terms on City Council. I am currently working on my bachelors for Social Work. I recently graduated Gateway with my associates in Human Services. I have a passion for Falmouth and want the best for the community. I am always here for the people and do what I can to serve the community. I believe that a positive attitude and dedication can make great changes.

Sebastian Ernst, Councilman

Phone: (859) 905-9255

Sebastian Ernst is a lifelong resident of Pendleton County. He grew up on a little farm on the outskirts of Butler with his three older brothers. He attended Pendleton County schools where he later went on to join the Marines at age 17. He served five years as an Avionics Electronics Technician working for the Presidential Helicopter Fleet HMX-1. He scored the top of his class at the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training which led to him being selected to the presidential fleet. During his time at Quantico, he was meritoriously promoted twice for exemplary service. He left the Marines as a Sergeant in order to pursue his professional and political career. He and his wife Marissa Ernst decided to move back to their hometown to raise their children. Within the first year of his EAS, he opened up The Smoking Pig Tavern in downtown Falmouth along with his mother, Jennifer McCall. Sebastian has contributed largely to the revitalization of downtown Falmouth and hopes it’s only the beginning of a much needed rebirth in the historic district. With the help and support of the community he loves so dearly, he plans to reawaken the spirit and sense of community in Falmouth through promoting new and local businesses and engaging in community events and revitalization.
