My Top 3 Priorities

  • Affordable Housing - In order to create a sustainable future we must have affordable housing. We need housing for young families, our workforce, and fixed income seniors.
  • Jobs - Small businesses are the backbone of our rural economy. We must support local talent and invest in local people.
  • High-speed internet - High-speed internet is critical to education, healthcare and jobs in our community. Hilary is committed to bringing broadband and innovative economic opportunities to Nevada County.



Hilary Hodge is a sixth-generation Northern Californian.  Her rural roots go back to the 1850s, when her family moved out west to begin homesteading in the newly established Golden State.  Hilary grew up in the eastern part of the Bay Area and moved to Sacramento when she began attending the University of California at Davis.  Hilary spent ten years in California’s state capital before moving to Nevada County.

Hilary started her career out of college in Social Services, working as a case manager for low income families receiving subsidized child care in Sacramento County.  She is a long-time activist for social justice and has worked for nonprofit agencies and organizations for nearly twenty years. Hilary Hodge currently serves as the Executive Director of Sierra Commons, Nevada County’s nonprofit business education center and coworking space.

“I believe in putting our community first,” says Hilary. “I know that when we invest in local people and local dreams, our community and our economy is better for it.”

Hilary sits on the board of the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and on the Government Affairs Committee for the Nevada County regional chambers.  Hilary sings with the Music in the Mountains Chorus and volunteers with the Golden Country Gleaners, an organization that brings fresh produce to Nevada County’s service organizations that feed the hungry.

When Hilary isn’t working or volunteering, she is tending to her garden or reading a book.  Hilary lives with her family in Grass Valley.
