The Hill Family of McKinney TX

Chris 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 Hill represents as county commissioner. Hill has been married to his high school sweetheart, Laura, for 20 years. Today, they live in McKinney with their three children.

Before his election as county commissioner, Hill served as an Executive Pastor, and 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).

As the first in his family to graduate from college, Hill 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.

The Hill family attends and volunteers regularly at Christ Fellowship church in McKinney. He is a member of the Rotary Club of McKinney, the Kiwanis Club of McKinney, the Texas Home School Coalition, and a life member of the National Rifle Association. He serves on the board of directors for The Samaritan Inn and Minuteman Disaster Response. Hill is an Eagle Scout and a member of MENSA.

In both of his campaigns for county commissioner (2012 and 2016), Chris Hill pledged that he would pursue limited government, low taxes, and excellence in every aspect of county government. In his first four years as commissioner, Collin County reduced the property tax rate four consecutive times. Today, Collin County has the No. 1 lowest county property tax rate of all 254 Texas counties and is a leader in the state of Texas in economic opportunity and county government efficiency.

Chris Hill
Chris Hill

By Chris Hill, County Commissioner

Yesterday’s primary runoff election results hold great promise for Texas and for Texans!

Congratulations to our Republican nominees for statewide offices:

  • Dan Patrick for Lieutenant Governor
  • Ken Paxton for Attorney General
  • Sid Miller for Agriculture Commissioner
  • Ryan Sitton for Railroad Commissioner

Here in Collin County, congratulations to Matt Shaheen for his victory in the Texas House District 66 Republican runoff, and congratulations to Susan Fletcher for her runoff victory for Precinct 1 commissioner.

Regardless of which candidate(s) you supported in the primary election, these are our Republican candidates for office, they are all my candidates for the general election, and I hope they will be your candidates as well! We are certainly blessed to have such fine folks to represent us here in North Texas.

I would also like to express my heartfelt appreciation to Mark Reid, who has served with excellence and integrity as the commissioner of Precinct 1 since his appointment last November. Mark will continue to serve with passion and with honor until his term expires in December.

Thank you also to Glenn Callison for his willingness to run for Texas House District 66. I commend Glenn (and all candidates) for being willing to make the sacrifices necessary to run for public office and serve our community.

Lastly, but most importantly, thank you to everyone who voted, and especially to everyone who volunteered their time and energy helping their favorite candidates.


For Texas,

Chris Hill, County Commissioner

Election 2012: Ray Eckenrode on values

By Ray Eckenrode
My wife Megan and I have been blessed to grow up in the heart of Collin County. This is home.

We met in Junior High here, graduated High School here, and after returning from Texas Tech and A&M, respectively, we were married and are now raising three beautiful little girls here. This is home and it’s a great place to grow a family, build friendships, start a business, and “do life.” This community has provided us with faith, family, friends, and plenty of opportunities to serve.

Collin County is one of the most vibrant, growing counties in our State. I want to keep it that way. Our citizens deserve leaders who have the ability to understand current issues and the capacity to bring forward fiscally conservative ideas and initiatives. Our citizens deserve leaders who are open, transparent, and available. Quite simply, you deserve leaders who can truly lead.

I know how to get things done and have a strong and lengthy track record of leadership in our County. I value the people here. I value transportation – the ability to get in and around our county safely. I value safety. I value building partnerships to maximize Taxpayer’s dollars. I value a thriving business community that keeps our tax rate low and broadens options for work and free time.

I respectfully ask for your support and vote in the upcoming Republican Primary to allow me the privilege of representing the citizens of Collin County as the Precinct 3 County Commissioner.
