Angela Hill is a Republican member of the Mississippi State Senate, representing the 40th Senatorial District. She joined the Mississippi State Senate in 2012 and has served in that position since.

Hill has taught at Pearl River Central Elementary and Roseland Park Baptist Church Academy, and worked for Paul Bounds Inc., a small Picayune-based business. She graduated from Pearl River Community College and holds a BS in science education from the University of Southern Mississippi.


Campaign themes


On her website, Hill pledges to be "a strong conservative voice" for:

  • smaller government
  • less regulation
  • lower taxes
  • a balanced budget
  • protection of the unborn
  • protection of gun ownership
  • states rights
  • enforcement of immigration laws
  • constitutional authority in governing

She "believes stewardship of public funds and accountability to taxpayers is required of all legislators," and pledges not to make holding public office a life-long career.[1]
