State Representative Brett Hillyer is serving second first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. He represents the 98th District, which includes Tuscarawas County and part of Holmes County.

A lifelong resident of Ohio, Hillyer earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Akron and a Juris Doctor Degree from Ohio Northern University. He began private practice in 2011 at the Law Firm of Connolly, Hillyer & Ong and, in 2016, became an agent for Ohio Bar Title and Commonwealth Title.

In 2013, Hillyer was elected Uhrichsville City Law Director & Prosecutor. As Law Director, Hillyer managed Tuscarawas County's only functioning land bank, which has successfully acquired and sold abandoned properties and salvaged blighted properties to raise property values and clean up neighborhoods with minimal costs to taxpayers.

In addition to his law practice, Hillyer advises the villages of West Lafayette, Freeport, and Roswell. Hillyer further lends his time to the Dennison Rotary, The Tuscarawas County Business Factory, and the Uhrichsville Clay Museum.

Hillyer lives in Uhrichsville with his wife, Anna Marie, and their son, Hudson. In his free time, Hillyer is a waterfowl hunter, pheasant hunter and avid Lake Erie fisherman.
