PRINSBURG — State Rep. Tim Miller, R-Prinsburg, announced Monday that he is seeking a fourth term in the state Legislature as the District 17A representative. The district includes a portion of Kandiyohi and Chippewa, Renville and Swift counties.

“It has been an honor to serve the people of this district,” stated Miller in a news release announcing his decision. “I have worked hard to represent them in St. Paul and to resolve any matters they may have with the state. I am proud of the work I have accomplished for agriculture, health care, veterans, trafficked youth, and rural values, but I believe there is more work to be done and I still have the drive to meet the many challenges before us,” he said.

Miller lives in Prinsburg with his wife, Cherie, their son Jacob, and mother-in-law Norma. Cherie and Tim have a blended family of seven children and six grandchildren.

Miller currently serves on the Agriculture Finance, Public Safety, and Veterans Affairs Committees. He has a bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa. He is a veteran and small business owner.

In his announcement, Miller said he has heard “loud and clear from the voters that they want someone who is willing to work with both sides and to stop the partisan bickering.”

He said he want voters to know he is there to serve them and not his own interests or those of special interests or the party. Miller added that he has been willing to make tough decisions on behalf of his constituents.

He said the coming year will be difficult for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The economy is going to struggle to get back on track, and tough budget decisions will be made in the Legislature, he said.

“I am ready for these challenges and have a proven record of working hard toward solutions that best serve west central Minnesota. Together, we will get through this,” he stated.
