Macon City Councilwoman Willette Hill-Chambliss has recently announced that she is running for re-election to her Ward 4, Post 1 city council seat.

 

Willette is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willie C. Hill and was raised in the Unionville area of Macon.  After graduating from high school with honors, she attended Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama, and then transferred to Paine College in Augusta where she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology.  She has recently received her Executive Masters in Business Administration from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia.

 

Willette’s father, Willie C. Hill is a 28-year veteran of Macon politics, having been the first black to be elected President Pro-Tem and President of Macon City Council.  Having grown up in a political household, Willette has seen her share of the ins and outs of public service.

 

A dedicated public servant herself, Willette serves on the board of several organizations including the following:

 

·        Project Safe Neighborhoods through the U.S. Attorneys Office

·        Covenant Resource Development Center

·        First Choice Primary Care

·        Workforce Development Youth Council

·        Christian Refuge Impact Youth Organization

·        Middle Georgia Regional Development Center,

 

just to name a few.

 

Willette is a member of the Macon Chapter of the NAACP, the Bibb County Young Democrats, the Middle Georgia Paine College Alumni Club, the Mercer Scholarship Committee, and her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

 

As a sitting Macon city councilwoman for the past four years, Willette served Macon in the following capacities:

 

·        Chairwoman, Public Properties Committee

·        Chairwoman, General Employees Pension Board

·        Public Works and Engineering Committee

·        Mercer Scholarship Committee

·        Ordinance and Resolution Committee

 

Willette Hill-Chambliss is a true public servant, evident in her vision for the entire city of Macon.  “I want to create harmony between the different communities, the different governmental entities, and the races,” she said in a recent interview.  “We need to keep in mind that our job is to do what’s best for the citizens of the community.”
