WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Washington County Commissioner candidate John "Jack" Miller, described in a campaign press release as a "longtime Hagerstown resident and community volunteer," said he wants to promote sustainable economic growth in Washington County.
"I want to be the voice of the people and bring a common sense approach to running the county government," he said.
Miller, 67, is Corporate National Accounts manager for U.S. Silica, an industrial minerals company in Berkeley Springs, W.Va.
"With his 43 years experience as an employee of U.S. Silica, a company made up of community-minded caring individuals, he hopes to apply his work know-how to county government," Miller's campaign publicist, Barbara Carson, wrote in the press release.
Miller said he hoped to work with community groups such as the Greater Hagerstown Committee and CHIEF to promote sustainable economic development.
Miller and his wife, Sandy, moved to Hagerstown with their two young children in 1982. Miller quickly became involved with the Hagerstown PONY League and has served as its president since 1986, the press release said.
