Chris Hill, a McKinney resident running for Collin County Commissioner Precinct 3, announced today that he won the McKinney Tea Party straw poll with 58% of the vote. His opponent received 20%, and 22% of voters were undecided. The straw poll vote follows several weeks of candidate forums, including a live forum between Chris Hill and his opponent.
Also announced separately this week, the North Texas Tea Party has awarded Chris Hill the Tea Approved designation. The Tea Approved endorsement is awarded to the candidate whose “background, experience, actions, and voluntary associations” indicate that he will be a champion of the five principles of the tea party once in office. Those five principles are limited government, fiscal responsibility, personal responsibility, the rule of law, and national (and state) sovereignty.
In response to the straw poll and the Tea Approved endorsement, Chris Hill stated, “I’m thriled that our local tea party groups have identified me as the conservative, experienced candidate for county commissioner. I share the same passion for limited government, fiscal responsibility, personal responsibility, the rule of law, and national sovereignty. I’m honored to be Tea Approved, and to have won the McKinney Tea Party straw poll.”
The North Texas Tea Party joins a growing chorus of conservative voters, community leaders, and organizations that have recognized Chris Hill as the best choice for county commissioner in precinct 3. He has now received over 700 endorsements, including Dr. Bob Collins (Collin College Trustee), Mr. Ray Huffines (Huffines Auto Dealerships), and the Collin County Conservative Republicans.
