My name is Jeff Hindley and I moved to Beaverton when I was 5. Well, I had no choice, I mean how much say do you have about anything when you're 5? Basically, my parents made me come here but I'm glad they did. Beaverton is great and I love Washington County. I attended Vose Elementary, Highland Park Middle School and graduated from Beaverton High School.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Tabitha for over 26 years who has worked as a Registered Nurse for the last 15 years. I have 2 awesome boys who both graduated from Hillsboro High School with my oldest recently graduating from the University of Oregon...GO DUCKS! (Sorry Beaver fans...I love you too)
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Leadership and a Masters Degree in Theological Studies. Most of my professional life has been working with youth in the criminal justice and mental health fields and it's been quite rewarding. In those fields, I have worked in County government for over 20 years with the last 10 as an administrator, specifically to our great neighbor to the south, Yamhill County. Because of this, I have a detailed knowledge of how county government works as well as an experienced understanding of the perspective of county employees, the needs of the citizens and both the strengths and limitations of government.
My other feats of public service have been as a volunteer basketball coach and I have taught growth group classes at my local church here in the community for many years. I currently serve on Washington County's Homeless Plan Advisory Committee (HPAC) and am a member of the Washington County Public Affairs Forum.
My wife and I came from blue collar families and have worked hard for everything that we have. My experiences are much like many of yours and consequently, I'm not much different than most of you. One major difference is that I'm willing to take some hard shots and put myself out there for all of the county's citizens, no matter the consequences, to ensure it remains the greatest county in Oregon for all of us. Washington County will never become Multnomah County under my watch!
Please feel free to contact me on the link provided on the main page if you have questions, comments or want to tell me what you or your community is struggling with. But, as I'm a positive person and a bit of an optimist, I would also like to hear about what's good and what you love about Washington County as well.
Thank you for your support and trust.
