Miller running for re-election

December 4, 2019

I have had a few people question if I am running for re-election as Linn County Auditor in 2020.  I am.  In September, I started going door-to-door with my nomination papers.

Today, I talked to Chairman Brett Nilles of the Linn County Democratic Party and requested he include my nomination papers in the precinct packets to be distributed for the upcoming caucuses.

When I ran in 2016, I thought that would be my last run.  One son lived in Wisconsin and my wife and I wanted to see his family more.  Another son lived in Central Iowa and we wanted to see his family, too.  Thankfully, our daughter and her family live in the Metro area.  The weekend drives to Wisconsin and the balancing act between families was starting to take a toll on us.  Not running for re-election appeared to be the solution.

Earlier this year, my son, daughter-in-law, and grandkids from Wisconsin moved into a house about 200 feet from our home.  No more exhausting weekend drives.  The balancing act still continues, but it is manageable.

So yes, I am running to be the Democratic nominee for Linn County Auditor in the June 2020 primary election.  Family considerations are not necessarily a good reason to run for re-election, but they certainly can be a major reason not to run.

I have other reasons for running for re-election and I will share those at the appropriate time.  Until then, Happy Holidays!  Joel D. Miller – Grandfather.  Paid for by Miller for Auditor
