Precinct 3, in northeast Collin County, includes the cities of McKinney, Allen, Fairview, Anna, Melissa, Princeton, Farmersville, Lucas, Blue Ridge, Weston, New Hope, and Lowry Crossing. The Precinct 3 seat on the Commissioners Court will be an open seat in the upcoming Republican primary election on March 6 following the announcement that current Commissioner Joe Jaynes will not seek reelection.
Hill works as Controller at North Texas Public Broadcasting. He has extensive financial and organizational leadership experience, serving both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). He has a Bachelor of Political Science degree from Texas A&M University-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.
“My financial and leadership experience makes me uniquely qualified for this position,” said Mr. Hill. “I have the conservative values, financial skills, and business experience necessary to lead Collin County as the next Commissioner of Precinct 3. As a proven fiscal conservative, I am able to address the County’s complex budget decisions with a steadfast commitment to keeping our taxes low. As a Certified Public Accountant, my commitment is always to my client, and I pledge to serve the people of Collin County with that same leadership, integrity, and experience.”
Hill has been an active conservative in Collin County Republican politics by serving as precinct chair, election judge, and delegate/alternate at Republican state conventions since 1996. He is Treasurer for the Collin County Republican Party and has served on the budget committee, financial review committee, bylaws committee, and as chair of the technology committee.
Dr. Bri Flavill Andor of McKinney, Hill’s campaign director, said that the campaign has received several early endorsements from conservative Collin County voters, precinct chairs, and Republican leaders. Collin College trustee and founding board member, Dr. Bob Collins of Farmersville, will serve as campaign treasurer for the Hill campaign. Dr. Collins is a long-time Collin County business, political, and education leader.
A third-generation native north Texan, Hill resides in McKinney with his wife of 14 years, Laura, and their three children. He is an Eagle Scout and currently volunteers as a Cub Scout leader for his two sons. Hill and his family attend and volunteer at Christ Fellowship church in McKinney.
