Smart Voter Full Biography for Jerry Hill

Candidate for
State Senator; District 13

This information is provided by the candidate

Jerry Hill has lived on the Peninsula for forty-two years, dedicating the last twenty years of his life to public service. He led the successful effort to expand health insurance to every child in San Mateo County without raising taxes, he fought to preserve thousands of acres of parks, open space and coastal areas for future generations, and he enacted laws to set tough limits on air pollution and global warming emissions.

His service began as a member of his neighborhood homeowners association and led to an election to the San Mateo City Council during a successful effort to prevent massive high-rises from being built in San Mateo. He later served on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and the California Air Resources Board before being elected to the State Assembly where he has served since 2008.

Since arriving in the Legislature, Jerry has focused on creating jobs, protecting consumers, saving taxpayer dollars, improving environmental and public health, and helping schools create the workforce of tomorrow.
