Roswell Civic Leader, Lee Hills, Announces Bid for Roswell City Council Post 6
Roswell, GA --- Roswell resident Lee Hills qualified Monday in her bid for Roswell City Council Post 6. Graham “Lee” Hills is a long-time resident of Roswell and has been active for over 35 years leading non-profit organizations, community outreach and fundraising for philanthropic causes.
As a city council member, Hills will use her experience leading successful organizations to focus on city development and infrastructure projects that are currently stalled or running over budget and beyond projected delivery dates. “Various City projects have floundered over the years resulting in wasted tax-payer dollars while failing to deliver on promises - all of which have eroded the public’s trust and confidence in our local government. This has to change” stated Lee. “I am just the person to roll up my sleeves to get to the bottom of these issues and establish transparency and implement oversight measures that residents deserve. We have to build on what we do well and not be afraid to boldly lead in the right direction.”
“The City of Roswell is a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family and retire. But more needs to be done. For instance, our Recreation and Parks have not been kept up-to-date and are not comparable to our neighboring cities. In addition, Roswell needs to get serious about economic development to attract the right types of businesses that fit our community’s vision, improve the resident’s overall quality of life and where ensuing Roswell generations thrive long into the future. That is something I will focus on with an emphasis on families, local transportation,and protecting neighborhoods all across Roswell”
Her expertise and passion as the President of the Roswell High School PTA includes successfully leading a team of 41+ volunteers in fund-raising, financial reporting, large-scale event coordination and leadership development that have benefited our beloved Roswell high school and the community at large.
Lee is also very proud to be a founding board member of the Keller Williams non-profit Curtin Team Cares - their mission to provide an ear, shoulder, heart, hand, and the resources to empower the vulnerable and strengthen communities for all. Some of their community outreach activities have included: supporting My Neighbors pantry that serves children and families in crisis, donations for Vickery Mill Elementary kids School Meal Program and the Tiny Houses program dedicated to preventing sexual exploitation of women in the Atlanta metro.
In her role as a Senior Officer of the Martha Stewart Bulloch Society Children of American Revolution, Lee helped lead the society in being named the 3rd in the nation by celebrating local patriotic causes such as recognition for local veterans and active service men and women. This role included mentoring youth members, celebrating patriotic events and sites, and teaching how our Constitution still impacts our everyday lives. She is also a 12 year member of the Martha Stewart Bulloch Society DAR in Roswell, and serves as Americanism Chair where she participates in Naturalization ceremonies in Georgia. Lee has welcomed hundreds of brand new Americans who have obtained their citizenship and assisted them in registering to vote. “These events are so inspiring and heartwarming, meeting people so proud to become a citizen of the United States.” states Hills.
Lee and her husband, Wes Hills, met while attending Auburn University. After graduating from Roswell High School, her son Rapley now attends Auburn as well. Her daughter Graham is currently a student at Southern Union State Community College and plans to attend Auburn soon. Their family currently attends Restoration Church on Rucker Road.
