Chris Hill’s Vision

Noon, Wednesday, Oct. 10th


At the end of this year, there will be a changing of the guard.  As Judge Keith Self retires from his role as the highest elected official in Collin County government, he will hand that stewardship to Chris Hill, the presumptive victor in November’s election.

Chris is a sixth-generation native Texan, and a fourth-generation resident of Collin County. His great-great-grandfather was a Collin County farmer in the early 1900s. Chris has been married to his high school sweetheart, Laura, for 20 years. Today, they live in McKinney with their three children.

Prior to his election as county commissioner, Chris served as an Executive Pastor and worked as a corporate accountant and controller in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, gaining extensive financial and organizational leadership experience. He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). Chris is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and the Institute of Internal Auditors.  Needless to say, we’re counting on him to stand guard against potential future fraud and waste.

As the first person in his family to graduate from college, Chris earned a Bachelor of Political Science degree from Texas A&M University at Commerce. He also earned a Master of Accounting and Information Management degree from the University of Texas at Dallas, a Master of Business Administration degree from Webster University, and a Master of Pastoral Leadership degree from Columbia Biblical Seminary.

Chris has been an active volunteer and member of the community, serving as a Republican precinct chair, election judge, and delegate/alternate at Republican state conventions since 1996. He previously served as the Treasurer for the Collin County Republican Party, and in 2010, Chris was named the Collin County Republican Party Volunteer of the Year.

It is fair to say that, standing where Keith Self has stood, Chris has big boots to fill.  We look forward to hearing his vision and his priorities.

This month at Lincoln.  We’ll see you there!
