Miller earned a degree in Liberal Arts from Elgin Community College in 2012.
Miller's campaign website highlights the following issues:
- Excerpt: "The steps that need to be taken to allow businesses to thrive in Illinois must include lower regulations while still making sure the people are reasonably safe and to keep business taxes and license fees low. Also, an important way to attract more manufacturers to Illinois is to support the technical schools and make them the best in the country so we have the best employees."
- Excerpt: "I would enthusiastically agree with testing that requires students to use the skills and concepts they have learned and put them to use in actual hands on situations. This type of learning and testing also needs to continue into the community colleges and universities. Not only teaching ideas and concepts but allowing more hands on learning where the students must use the things they are learning about in real situations. This will keep the students more interested in learning and will also give our students the best education in the country."
- Excerpt: "With four of the last nine Illinois governors going to prison, we definitely need term limits for not only our governors but both chambers of the General Assembly."
- Excerpt: "However, as we have recently seen, the pension system that is in place is not working because the General Assembly is not constitutionally required to fund the pension fund every year. This has caused the General Assembly to push the pension liabilities out into the future and has caused the problem we are seeing today of over $100 billion of unfunded pensions. Changing to a Defined Contribution Plan such as a 401k would be one answer to this problem because the benefits are dependent on what the market does instead of the benefits being guaranteed like they are today."
- Excerpt: "We must take a very close look at the budget to make sure it only includes what is absolutely necessary to support an efficient state government, without cutting important government services, before the state government borrows any more money. I will work diligently to make sure this happens."
- Excerpt: "Keeping business taxes in Illinois lower than in other states will attract more businesses to Illinois to provide the jobs our citizens need. More jobs will create job competition. Job competition will naturally raise the wages."
- Excerpt: "Just continuing to give people money without expecting any responsibility on their part will never pull anyone up out of poverty. Today we reward people who don’t work and penalize people who do, this must change in order to stop the poverty in Illinois and the country. Also, there are some people who absolutely cannot work and it is our responsibility to take care of them and allow them to live a safe, comfortable life by meeting their unique needs in the best possible way."
- Excerpt: "I will continue to support the repairs going on and work hard to find the money to bring our infrastructure up to date to keep the people of Illinois safe and competitive with the rest of the world."
