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.
