Miller wants party nod to take on Falk again

PRINSBURG – A Prinsburg resident active in the Republican Party will be seeking its endorsement to run for the House District 17A seat.

Tim Miller announced his campaign on Wednesday to win the endorsement and a possible rematch with Rep. Andrew Falk, DFL-Murdock, for the seat.

Miller currently works with Habitat for Humanity of West Central Minnesota. He also owns a consulting business, Development Partners, which specializes in strategic business plan for nonprofits and for profit businesses.

Miller took on Falk over spending by state government and his vote for marriage equality in the news release announcing his candidacy. He charged that … “By holding the majority in both the House and Senate, Governor Dayton and the Democrats ran rampant with tax increases and needless spending.”

He called Falk’s vote for the marriage equality act “arrogant,” stating that more than 60 percent of his district was opposed to the act.

“If elected I will stand firm to principles of an efficient government, fiscal responsibility, individual rights and accountability, and family-driven values. My priorities will include job growth, education, and other priorities of west central Minnesota, not political favors to friends in St. Paul,” stated the candidate in the release.

Miller is married with seven children and three grandchildren. He has lived in Prinsburg since 2003. He is a graduate of the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He is also an Army Reserve veteran with an honorable discharge and multiple service medal awards, according to the news release.

District 17A includes Chippewa and Swift counties, most of Renville County, and the four southwestern townships of Kandiyohi County.
