SSN: Meet Mike Hill #tcot

Meet Mike Hill: Florida's Newest Legislator, 'Free-Market Capitalist Zealot'

By: ERIC GIUNTA | Posted: June 14, 2013

Hill

Rep. Mike Hill, R-Pensacola
Date of Birth: June 2, 1958
Birthplace: Scott Air Force Base
Residence: Pensacola
Education: University of West Florida, Master of Business Administration
Occupation: Insurance Agent, Consultant
Previous Public Office: None.

Did you know? Was a former heavy-weight boxer while in the Air Force: "My record was 8-1; my only loss was to the heavyweight champion; the next year we had a re-match, and that was the only loss of his career."

When Pensacola's Mike Hill soared to an easy electoral victory in Tuesday night's special election to replace the late Rep. Clay Ford, he did more than become Florida's newest legislator: he made history, becoming the Panhandle's first black Republican elected to the Legislature in 126 years.

“Of course it's an honor to be able to make history, but for me it really is a non-issue,” Hill tells Sunshine State News, in his first post-election interview. “I like to instead be thought of, as Dr. Martin Luther King said, not for the color of my skin but the content of my character. I was elected because the people saw someone who was committed to the conservative values of limited government, lower taxes, personal freedom, and individual responsibility.”
