Biographical Info:

Originally from New York, Hildy moved to Arizona in 2005. With a background in marketing and communications, she worked for Showtime/The Movie Channel, the Society for Computer Simulation and LG Wireless. In 2002 she opened an Art Studio in La Mesa, CA called, “Masterpieces, Paint your Own” and developed a profound understanding and respect for small business owners.

After moving to Bullhead City with her late husband, Sam, Hildy combined her life-long passion for politics and her desire to help others into her current position as a three term Mohave County Supervisor, and is currently the Board Chairwoman.

Hildy has been an advocate for those suffering from mental health and addiction issues and has brought millions of dollars into her district for services. One of those facilities, a 16-bed, all women drug treatment center has been named after her. Since opening in 2020, Hildy’s House has helped hundred of women break the cycle of addiction to become good citizens in their communities.. Hildy has also secured funding for a jail-reentry program called Reach Out, first started in Yavapai County. To date, she has brought over $12million for helping decrease the recidivism rate in the County jail.

Hildy also led the charge to make Mohave County the first 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County, the first County in Arizona to do so.

Statement:

I am running for State Senate because I have a proven track record of success when fighting for the issues that are important to my constituents. I am a strong believer in local control and will defend local jurisdictions from State overreach.

Currently, LD30 has a great state delegation whom I have worked closely with over my twelve years as County Supervisor. I look forward to being there to be part of the LD30 team and have been endorsed by the two State Representatives and the outgoing, term-limited Senator as well as our CD9 Congressman, Dr. Paul Gosar.

Endorsements:

AZ Chamber of Commerce, Arizona Police Association, Greater Phoenix Chamber
