Father, we thank you for MPP Randy Hillier Thank you for his efforts to seek to improve the quality of life for Ontario residents. Continue to encourage him as he seeks to bring about changes that are important to him. May he also find the time to be revitalized and refreshed by his relationship with family and friends. In Christ’s name, Amen.
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.
