Delegate Terri Hill, M.D.

Welcome friends!

I’m Terri Hill, Maryland State Delegate in the reconfigured District 12A.  Since 2015 when I first came to Annapolis, we have made great progress with the issues that matter most to our District and State:

  • Job and career opportunities with financial security
  • Business growth and development for the 21st century
  • Great schools and educational opportunities
  • Safe and inclusive communities that nurture creativity and industry
  • Preservation of Maryland’s environment—the source of its beauty and wealth
  • Compassionate health care that promotes prevention and the highest standards of care
  • A living standard that affords a superior quality of life

You can follow me by visiting my General Assembly Page.

Your support is important to me as I continue to fight for a better Maryland every day. I remain committed and would like to return to the statehouse to build on our accomplishments. I hope I can count on your vote during the primary in July and on election day in November.

Thank you,

Priority Issues

Seniors and Vulnerable People

    1. Behavioral health support
    2. Housing
    3. Medical
Jobs

Workforce training and development

Education

    1.  Funding
    2. Visioncare
    3. Behavioral health

Our children need 21st century resources to prepare them for college and 21st century careers. And because children learn differently and have diverse abilities and interests, we must offer them multiple paths to success.  I am committed to providing the resources needed to strengthen our schools, close gaps in school readiness and achievement, supporting our teachers, and finding creative solutions to the problem of rising costs that are discouraging too many of our best and brightest from pursuing higher education.  I support:

  • Funding public Pre-K for all.
  • Giving teachers more professional development and planning opportunities, and peer platforms for the exchange of ideas.
  • Preparing students for college and 21st century careers through rigorous instruction in STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts and math)
  • Top quality vocational training and career certification programs incorporating expanded education partnerships with businesses and other employers
  • Improving the learning environment by modernizing facilities, relieving overcrowding and upgrading technology.
  • Making higher education more accessible by controlling costs and exploring innovative programs to finance tuition without incurring overwhelming debt.
  • Increasing investments in our community colleges and workforce training programs, to better meet the needs of both young people and older adults.
Environment

  • Climate change
  • Climate justice
  • Recycling
  • Conservation
  • Preservation of Maryland’s natural resources
Healthcare, Mental Health, Public Health

Delegate Hill’s healthcare priorities are informed by her life’s work as a surgeon. She will continue to:

  • Work to provide tools to help Marylander’s navigate health care access points and addressing quality of care concerns
  • Eliminate barriers to quality affordable health care
  • Establish effective addiction and behavioral health treatment
  • Lower prescription drug costs
  • Decrease infant and maternal mortality
  • Support adequate provider reimbursements

Address economic, healthcare, environment and education disparities

THEY FOUGHT THE LAWN AND THE LAWN LOST IN COLUMBIA:
A LEGISLATIVE SUCCESS STORY

It is especially rewarding to find out that a legislative solution we developed has such far reaching and positive impact - enough to merit a NY Times article.

Following passage, several HOAs reached out with concerns that the statute would unfairly challenge their ability to maintain the home values of their communities. I am happy to say those fears did not manifest, and they have since found that the provisions for reasonableness give them and homeowners the flexibility to be both good environmental stewards and good neighbors and HOA members.

I've been out and about and there is a steady flow at the polls. Books bans and "taking back" are powerful motivators. Please get to the polls by 8pm if you haven't already voted. Our democracy, women's health, the right to inclusive and truthful history and so much more is on the ballot.

Complacency will not move us forward. PLEASE VOTE!
