Carol Hill-Evans, a Democrat, was first elected to York City Council in November 2007 and sworn into office in January 2008, and after winning a re-election bid for a second term on Council, was again sworn into office on January 3, 2012. Carol serves as the President of Council, as well as Chair of Council's Rules & Administrative Code Committee, and Council's liaison to the York County Board of Commissioners. She is also a member of the Public Works and Business Administration Committees of Council. She is a former member of the Police, Fire, Community Development, and Business Administration committees, and former Council representative to the Officers' and Employees' Retirement Board, and the City/School District Cooperation & Open Communications Committee. Carol served as Vice President of Council from 2008 to 2011 and former Chair of the Economic & Community Development Committe.
A proud, life-long resident of York City, Carol attended city schools and in 2001 earned a Bachelor's Degree (BABus) from Penn State York. Carol became interested in public service while in a previous position as neighborhood resource specialist for the city administration, which put her in touch with neighborhood associations and residents passionate about improving the city. Gradually, she became more involved herself. She believes the city not only needs the economic development projects she's helped advance while serving on the York City Planning Commission, but community development to improve roads, sidewalks and public safety.
Carol became a founding member of the Veterans Memorial Park Neighborhood Association and eventually spent two years as its President. Carol said her work as a liaison to neighborhood associations made her familiar with the needs of city residents. She states:
"Having worked with them over the years, I want to be their voice. I want them to know they're not forgotten as far as the City Council's concerned -- as far as the city and the administration is concerned. Furthermore, I will work for my constituents by continuing to ask the tough questions, doing the research to present factual information to the public, and work cooperatively with the administration to fulfill the vision for the City of York."
