Randy is the proud father of 4 children, and is fortunate to have the love and support of his wife Jane for over 37 years. They have been long-time residents of Lanark County and currently reside near the Town of Perth.
Randy is an electrician by trade, and a former member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). He is also a former Project Manager in the Public Works division of the Federal Government.
He is one of the four founders of the Lanark Landowners Association, brought to life at a kitchen table in Lanark County to address the challenges and government over-regulation facing farmers and businesses in rural Ontario.
Within a few short years, the Landowners Association went province-wide with chapters in almost every county. Randy Hillier was nominated as the first President at the inaugural meeting of the Ontario Landowners Association and quickly became a strong advocate for the rights of rural communities across the province.
In 2007 Randy sought and won the Progressive Conservative nomination in the riding of Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington. He went on to win one of 3 new seats for the PC Party in the 2007 Provincial election. In 2011 he won re-election, earning more than 50% of all ballots cast. Randy was once again re-elected comfortably in 2014 by over 7000 votes.
Randy continues to hold the Liberal Government to account at Queen's Park for their indifference to the needs of rural Ontarians, the over-regulation that is stifling our businesses' ability to succeed, and the lack of respect for the taxpayers. He will continue this fight on behalf of taxpayers in every corner of this great province.
