Chris Hill, a McKinney resident & CPA running for Collin County Commissioner Precinct 3, announced today that he has received the endorsement of Carol Everett, founder of The Heidi Group. Everett has been a pro-life advocate for almost 30 years, appearing on various radio and television shows and authoring a book.
"I am pleased to endorse Chris Hill because he is 100 percent pro-life and works diligently to promote pro-family causes," Everett said. "Chris and his wife, Laura, have participated in pro-life events supporting families and individuals in crisis situations. They are not afraid to stand up for what they believe."
In response to Ms. Everett's endorsement, Chris Hill said, "It is a great honor to receive the support of one of Texas' most committed pro-life advocates. I look forward to promoting conservatives values in Collin County and serving families in our county."
Everett added, "Chris has demonstrated servant leadership in his family, his church, his community and in his current position as corporate controller of a large corporation. His volunteer activities behind the scenes in the Republican Party earned him the 'Volunteer of the Year' award in 2010. We need people with the values and experience Chris demonstrates for our elected officials."
Carol Everett founded The Heidi Group in 1995 to connect pregnant girls and women to pro-life resources in Texas. Before that time, she worked more than a decade to educate the pro-life movement about the day-to-day activities of abortion clinics. Prior to becoming a pro-life advocate, Everett worked for six years in an abortion clinic after having an abortion herself in 1973. In 1983, Everett's life changed when she found God and began working to help pregnant women and girls by connecting them with pro-life options.
