Timothy Aaron Hill[3] (born November 9, 1981 in Blountville, Tennessee) is an American politician and a Republican member of the Tennessee House of Representatives representing District 3 since January 8, 2013.

Hill is an employee of the §501(c)(3) Appalachian Educational Communication Corporation (d.b.a. WHCB 91.5 FM et al), a co-owner since 2009 of the Right Way Marketing, LLC a telemarketing firm with his brother, Matthew Hill, and sole owner of the Bonzo's Fireworks stand in Johnson County, Tennessee,[4]

Hill served the one-term former U.S. Representative David Davis as a congressional press secretary in Washington, D.C.

He was recently named Tri-Cities Business Journal "40 under 40".

Hill's father, Kenneth C. Hill, was appointed as a Tennessee Regulatory Authority director during January, 2009 by Blountville resident and Tennessee Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey.

Education[edit]

Hill earned his AS from Northeast State Community College and his bachelor's degree in Mass Communication from East Tennessee State University.

2007 Wikipedia blanking vandalism: David Davis, Matthew Hill[edit]

In August 2007, U.S. Rep. David Davis's press secretary Timothy Hill at first denied, and later acknowledged, during a second press interview with the Knoxville News Sentinel that he had in June 2007 used congressional office computer and resources within the U.S. House of Representatives to delete referenced blocks of information (termed as "blanking vandalism") about his employer Davis and his brother Tennessee Representative Matthew Hill from biographies on Wikipedia.[9] "Part of the information he tried to remove concerned political contributions to both his brother and Davis by former King Pharmaceuticals CEO John Gregory, the prescription drug Altace then branded by the King Pharmaceuticals subsidiary Monarch Pharmaceuticals, as well as other political ties to the Gregory family in northeast Tennessee."[10]
