Redmond resident Andy Hill filed yesterday as a candidate for State Senate in the 45th legislative district and said that he is an ordinary citizen running to make big changes in Olympia.

“This state is headed in the wrong direction and it’s time for real change in Olympia,” Hill said. “Our state government’s priorities are out of sync with the people it represents, and we are on a path that will lead to higher deficits and massive tax increases. That is the wrong vision of the future for Washington State.”

In a press release, Hill stated that his top priorities would be policies that encourage economic growth and job creation along with funding our schools to give the state’s children the greatest opportunities.

“The only way to change Olympia is to change the people we elect to represent us,” Hill added.

A graduate of Colgate University and Harvard Business School, he worked for Microsoft where he was most successful in turning around troubled projects. He also led the company’s design of innovative K-12 educational software. He has served as PTSA President, a volunteer math tutor for local kids, a youth soccer and lacrosse coach and as President of Lake Washington Soccer Association.

Most recently he was successful bringing together citizens, property owners and local government to while, at the same time, returning a historical piece of Sammamish Valley agricultural land to active organic farming.

Hill has been endorsed by local elected officials, business leaders, community activists and voters from across the district. He lives in Redmond with his wife Molly and their three children. For more information, visit
