Originally from Chicago, Hilda Montgomery was recruited to Central Texas by Dell to work as a manager in the factory on Braker Lane. She accumulated a wide-breath of experience working on servers, notebooks, and in Tech Support, before taking on a role as Project Manager overseeing all aspects of delivering services on hardware purchases for corporate and governmental clients.
Hilda has called Round Rock home for 19 years, and still lives in the same house she originally moved into. An avid community volunteer, she has worked with numerous local groups and non-profits including Caritas, Round Rock Serving Center, Meals on Wheels and the Food Pantry. She has also served as a Democratic Precinct Chair, and has been a long-time volunteer with the party, helping with voter registration, festivals, parades, and other community events.
Hilda strongly believes in making a difference in peoples’ lives, and that we need to get back to governing for the people. Her sense of purpose and duty stem from her father, who taught her ‘Honesty and Integrity first, and what follows is always what’s right’. Hilda cites inclusion and ensuring that the residents of Round Rock are involved with their city government as paramount. Her core issues also include improving traffic, pedestrian and cyclist safety, as well as protecting the environment and water.
Hilda spends her spare time enjoying the serenity of Round Rock’s nature trails, traveling and visiting family, as well as listening to classic radio dramas. She has a Pomeranian named Asia.
