Sen. Andy Hill files for re-election

Sen. Andy Hill has filed for re-election to the state senate for the 45th Legislative District.

"When I first ran for office four years ago, it was because Olympia had failed to listen to the citizens of this state and failed to provide leadership on the issues that matter," Hill said. "I promised to make changes and I've kept that promise."

Hill currently serves as chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee and is a leader in the bipartisan majority coalition in the state senate.

He also led the fight to add $1 billion to K-12, froze college tuition for the first time in 30 years and created a "Kids First" plan that dedicates two-thirds of new revenue to education.

In addition, Hill's Vulnerable Individuals Priority (VIP) Act, guarantees that the most vulnerable will receive the help they need.

"Olympia hasn't changed me," Hill said. "I've been able to help change Olympia. But there is still much to be done."

Hill has been endorsed by a bipartisan group of elected officials and community leaders.

"I am honored to represent the people of the 45th District in Olympia and I take my responsibilities very seriously. I am hopeful voters will entrust me with a second term so that I can continue my work to reform state government, improve education and get help for those who truly need it," Hill said.

Hill has lived in Washington for more than 20 years. A graduate of Colgate University and Harvard Business School, he worked for Microsoft Corp. He has also served as a PTSA president, volunteer math tutor, youth soccer and lacrosse coach and as president of Lake Washington Soccer Association. Hill also serves on the Evergreen Hospital Foundation board and is a trustee on the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition as well as serving on Hopelink's Campaign for a Lasting Change Advisory board.

Hill lives in Redmond with his wife Molly and their three children. For more information, visit
