Incumbent Chris Hill defeated candidate Joshua Murray in the race for Collin County judge, according to Nov. 8 election results.
Hill received 57.07% of the votes, while Murray had 42.93% with all 105 vote centers reporting.
Collin County boundaries include portions of several communities, such as Frisco, McKinney, Plano and Richardson.
Collin County Judge Chris Hill was first elected in 2018, after previously serving as a Collin County commissioner for Precinct 3 from 2012-17, according to the county website. Hill has worked as a pastor and an accountant.
Hill has campaigned for limited government, low taxes and “excellence in every aspect of county government,” according to his website. In a Community Impact Q&A, Hill said Collin County’s most significant challenges lie in its rapidly growing population and its effect on transportation, public safety and criminal justice.
“Over the next four years, we will continue to work together to keep Collin County the best place to live, work and raise a family,” he said in the Q&A.
Joshua Murray retired from the U.S. Army in 2015 and works in residential construction, according to his website. He campaigned on making investments to Collin County’s infrastructure and making pay more competitive for all county employees.
When reached after final results were posted, Murray expressed his thanks to the election workers who counted votes in Collin County.
"[I] just want to thank those that made the journey possible," Murray said. "[And] congratulate those that were given the opportunity to serve."
