From the Supervisor
Recently, former Supervisor of Elections Beverly Hill passed away. What a great loss to the Alachua County community as well as the elections family who knew her and served under her. She was a friend to so many and was such a blessing to this community, for which she cared deeply.
As Gainesville city mayor-commissioner and as Alachua County Supervisor of Elections, she served the public with the highest standard of integrity. She was indeed a great leader and served the citizens well.
As Supervisor of Elections from 1993 to 2004, Bev diligently and passionately served the voters of Alachua County. Her life was a life of public service. She gave her time to many worthwhile and notable organizations, like the League of Women Voters of Alachua County/Gainesville and several local historical societies, and also provided financial support to many causes.
Bev was not only my former boss — she was a mentor and a dear friend. She hired me in 1993 as outreach director with the elections office. I learned so much under her tutelage, and to this day, I carry that knowledge with me. She made a positive impact on my life and the lives of so many others. Her legacy will live on through me and the others she served.
Forever in our hearts: Beverly Hill, former Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
