This is Rep. Kristin Phillips-Hill’s second term in office representing Pennsylvania’s 93rd Legislative District in southern York County. During the 2017-18 legislative session, she has been appointed to serve on the Education, Health and State Government committees (she is also secretary of each of these committees), as well as the Gaming Oversight Committee. Phillips-Hill has also been re-appointed to serve as a majority deputy whip, and will be a member of the Speaker’s Equal Opportunity Advisory Committee.
In her first term in office, Phillips-Hill authored House Bill 2078, which was signed into law as Act 143 of 2016. The legislation accelerates the process veterans, military members and their spouses must follow when attempting to maintain state teaching certification due to frequent moves.
Kristin is a native of New Jersey. She was born in Camden and raised in Cinnaminson. Following graduation from the Cinnaminson School District in 1984, she attended Rutgers University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public policy.
Kristin served on the school board of the Dallastown Area School District for three years and is a former legislative staff member in the House Republican Caucus. She has extensive volunteer experience and is a former owner of a small business which purchased antiques and collectables for interior decorators and antique shops.
During her tenure as a school board member, the district did not raise taxes and continued to create well-rounded students who are ready to take on the challenges of the future. Kristin worked hard to raise awareness among her Dallastown colleagues, as well as those on neighboring school boards, of pending legislation and its potential effect on their districts.
Her position gave her a unique perspective on the process of funding our schools, which is why she lists property tax relief for her constituents as a priority. Kristin is also a proponent of improving Pennsylvania’s business climate, having realized the challenges associated with owning a business.
While believing the voters have the ultimate ability to limit the terms of service for their representatives, Kristin is setting her own term limits by promising to serve in the Legislature a maximum 10 years (five terms). During that tenure, she will not be participating in the State Employees Retirement System or health insurance program. She will commute to and from Harrisburg using her own vehicle and will not be submitting mileage.
The 93rd District consists of the York County townships of East Hopewell, Fawn, Hopewell, North Hopewell, Springfield and York; and boroughs of Cross Roads, Dallastown, Fawn Grove, Jacobus, Loganville, Seven Valleys, Shrewsbury, Stewartstown, Winterstown and Yoe.
