Tim Miller

PRINSBURG - A Prinsburg man is the first to announce his candidacy for the House of Representatives for the new District 17A seat.

Tim Miller said today he will seek the endorsement of the Republican Party at the Senate District 17 convention in late March.

The new 17A district, which was announced last week as part of a redistricting plan that reflects new population figures, includes Chippewa County, Swift County, much of Renville County and the southern few townships of Kandiyohi County.

DFLers Lyle Koenen, of Clara City, and Andrew Falk, of Murdock, were both put into District 17A as a result of the redistricting. It's not known yet if one or both of them will seek the DFL endorsement for that seat

Miller is currently employed by the University of Minnesota at the newly developed Mid-Central Research and Outreach Center at the MinnWest Technology Campus in Willmar. He also owns his own consulting business, Development Partners, that specializes in project management for agriculture and renewable energy businesses.

Miller is a graduate of the University of Iowa with a Bachelors of Science Degree in psychology. He is also an Army Reserve veteran with an honorable discharge and multiple service medal awards.

Miller and his family have lived in Prinsburg since 2003.
