MCKINNEY, Texas – This week, Chris Hill officially launched his re-election campaign for county commissioner of precinct three in Collin County. Commissioner Hill was first elected to the position in 2012. Precinct three, in northeast Collin County, includes the cities of McKinney, Allen, Anna, Fairview, Princeton, Lucas, Melissa, Farmersville, Lowry Crossing, Blue Ridge, New Hope, and Weston. In conjunction with the campaign launch, Hill announced over 550 names of endorsements from citizens, local leaders, and elected officials pledging their support and endorsement for his re-election campaign.
“I’m honored to have the support of these dedicated volunteers and community leaders,” said Mr. Hill during his campaign launch event. “I kept the promises I made to the voters, the taxpayers, and the citizens of Collin County in my first campaign, and I’m grateful to have the support of my community as we move forward.”
“Collin County remains an exceptional community characterized by abundant economic opportunities, wonderful neighborhoods, outstanding schools, and a fantastic quality of life,” said Commissioner Hill. “The foundation of our success as a county and a community is built upon caring & engaged families, a dynamic and vibrant faith community, the entrepreneurial spirit of our small businesses, and world-class corporate partners. It is my great privilege to serve Collin County and to promote a prudent, limited-government model of county governance, so that our community and our citizens will continue to thrive.”
Hill is a sixth-generation native Texan, and a fourth-generation resident of Collin County. In the early 1900s, his great-great-grandfather was a Collin County farmer – in the same precinct Chris now represents as county commissioner. Today, Chris lives in McKinney with his wife of 18 years, Laura, and their three children.
Prior to his election as county commissioner, Hill worked as a corporate accountant and controller in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). He earned a Bachelor of Political Science degree from Texas A&M University at Commerce, a Master of Pastoral Leadership degree from Columbia Biblical Seminary, a Master of Business Administration degree from Webster University, and a Master of Accounting and Information Management degree from the University of Texas at Dallas.
He and his family attend and volunteer regularly at Christ Fellowship church in McKinney.

He currently serves on the board of directors for The Samaritan Inn, Hope Women’s Center, Minuteman Disaster Response, and TAPS Public Transit.
