Campaign Issues

The following statements were listed on Miller's campaign website:[5]

  • Fracking: "I promise to ensure that regulations designed to protect groundwater quality will be appropriately administered by the Railroad Commission. If contamination should occur due to negligent oil and gas operations, I also promise to use whatever powers the Railroad Commission has to hold those operators accountable. At this point in time, however, there is no reason that this important technology should not be applied to producing energy for Texas and the rest of the Nation."
  • Proposition 6: "Though it is clear that Texas needs to do more to ensure adequate water supplies to our fast-growing state, I do not believe that Proposition 6 is the solution. I voted No on Proposition 6."
Note: The above excerpts are from the candidate's website, which may include some typographical or spelling errors.


Miller lives in Austin, Texas. He has two sons and two grandsons.[2]
