PRINSBURG - State Rep. Tim Miller announced this week he will seek re-election to the Minnesota House of Representatives for District 17A.
“It has been such an honor to serve the residents of west central Minnesota,” said Miller, R-Prinsburg, in a news release.
He said new laws passed last year, including $5 mil-
lion in new funding to nursing homes in the district, funding for street improvements in small towns and action to help poultry producers deal with avian influenza, “have positively impacted the people in our area, and I look forward to building on this success.”
Miller said he also supports initiatives approved by the Minnesota House that await legislative action in 2016, such as a property tax credit for farmers to provide relief from school district debt service, a transportation funding proposal to dedicate $7 billion to statewide road and bridge needs without raising taxes and general tax relief for working Minnesotans.
Miller is also championing legislation that would construct a veterans home in Montevideo and would reopen the Prairie Correctional Facility in Appleton.
“I met with hundreds of area residents at the State Capitol last session and I hope to meet with thousands more around the district once the campaign season begins,” Miller said.
Miller and his wife, Cherie, live in Prinsburg with three of their seven children.
