Miller will face challengers Stephen A. DiServio and Doug Vaira. Miller, who was elected to fill a two-year unexpired term on council, said he wants to retain his council seat because he thinks he has gained the experience necessary in the last two years to serve the city.

After all, it's nice to have nearly 8 million people within a full gas tank of your business. In this instance, the business is local tourism, and the numbers seem to hint that something - possibly higher gas prices - is putting the spurs to the travel-related economy. Washington County has more hotel rooms, and more of them are full, than ever before.
