Experienced Leadership

Delegate Terri Hill, M.D.

Welcome friends!

I’m Terri Hill, Maryland State Delegate for District 12.  As I campaign for re-election, I look forward to representing you in the newly configured 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

I am outraged. In a week that will live on in infamy, a politicized Court has issued rulings on gun control and abortion that are contrary to the values and will of the majority of Americans and particularly endangers the lives of children and their mothers. This is wrong.

Although we in Maryland might feel thankful to live in state where we are protected, at least for the moment, it’s not enough for any of us to feel safe. Our civil liberties as a nation are at stake. Next up, according to the opinion of one justice, are contraception access, marriage equality, LGBTQ rights and other privacy and constitutional protections.

It is well past the time for us to stand up and fight for the nation we aspire to be. This is a call for activism. Please heed the call of President Barack Obama to stand in protest, volunteer with organizations, knock on doors for political candidates and vote. “Because in the end, if we want judges who will protect all, and not just some, of our rights, then we’ve got to elect officials committed to doing the same.”

As we enter the final 6 hours of the 2022 legislative session, the last 48 hours encompass in miniature so much of the last 3 ¹/² years - the legislative work, constituent service and community events, the communal ties, the importance of great leadership - lost and gained.
Delegate Ariana Kelley leading the floor in the veto override vote on the Abortion Care Access Act, the installation of new English Council Volunteer Firefighters officers, the Sine Die lunch receptions - a true sign that things are normalizing - with gubernatorial candidate Wes Moore, Lieutenant Governor candidate former delegate Aruna Miller, the unveiling of the official portrait of late Speaker Michael Busch (who passed 4/7/19), and Speaker Adrienne Jones preciding over the final hours of presumably the last floor session of this term.
