A resident of San Luis Obispo County since 1995, Adam Hill taught literature and writing at Cal Poly for 13 years before being elected to the Board of Supervisors. As 3rd District Supervisor, Adam serves in many leadership capacities. He’s been recognized throughout our community for his passionate effectiveness on issues ranging from local jobs to mental health to homelessness.
As he helps guide our community through the closure of Diablo Canyon Power Plant, he is serving on a working committee of the Hourglass Project, which seeks to stimulate greater economic development in our region.
Additionally, Adam is a board member on the Homeless Services Oversight Council, the Council of Governments, the Regional Transit Authority, the Integrated Waste Management Authority, and the Air Pollution Control District.
Adam is known for being a voracious reader, a devout jazz fan, as well as lover of dogs, art, and very recently, yoga.
Adam has enjoyed the opportunity to give remarks and/or write viewpoints on a number of important issues in which our county has been on the forefront, including green energy, climate change policies, compensation reform, gang intervention, and reducing crime reoccurrence.
