About the Author

Jim A. Hill
Jim was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia in 1947 and raised by his single mother. Jim grew up in the segregated South. He received a BA in economics from Michigan State University in 1969, an MBA from Indiana University in 1971 and a JD from Indiana University College of Law in 1974.

Jim moved to Salem Oregon in 1974 where he raised a bi-racial daughter - Jennifer and worked as an Assistant Attorney General at the Oregon Department of Justice. He went on to become an Oregon State Representative in 1983 and an Oregon State Senator in 1987. Some of his accomplishments were co-sponsoring the establishment of a Martin King, Jr. Holiday, passing the Anti-Apartheid Act, creating the Oregon Resource and Technology Development Corporation that supplied seed capital to Oregon businesses and he introduced the bill to allow Oregon State Lottery funds to enhance Oregon's economy.

Jim was the first elected person of color to hold a statewide office in Oregon in 1993 when he was elected as State Treasurer. He served two terms. During his tenure as State Treasurer, he oversaw an improvement of the state's bond rating and the creation of the Oregon Growth Account, an investment program exclusively dedicated to providing seed and venture capital dollars to Oregon businesses. Jim worked to improve financial literacy and held the "Every Woman's Money Conference" to provide women with the tools they needed to succeed financially. He then ran unsuccessfully for Governor of the State of Oregon.

Jim has served on several important boards - the Northwest Health Foundation, Oregon Assembly for Black Affairs, Oregon National Bar Association, NARAL, and the National Association of State Treasurers where he served as President.

Jim lives in Salem Oregon where he remains committed to making a difference through the power of the written word.
