A 24-year-old Canandaigua resident who grew up in Irondequoit is vying to challenge Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, the incumbent Republican, for his seat.
On New Years Eve Assemblyman Kolb was charged with driving while intoxicated. He was operating his state-owned GMC Arcadia.
But the New York Army National Guard veteran isn’t piling on to recent coverage of Kolb’s arrest. The Democratic hopeful instead told The Messenger Post that he’s appreciative of the steps Kolb took after the incident.
“I appreciate him immediately taking responsibility and sincere apology,” Miller told The Messenger Post. “No matter what he decides to do, we are running our campaign at full speed to defeat him or any other Republican in November to bring new leadership to Albany.”
As for the reason why Miller got into the race during the fall – it came down to a desire to help others. “I have a passion for helping people and being in some form of service, whether it be in the private or public sector,” Miller told The Messenger. “My experience in the military and working in healthcare helped me realize my ability to make the state a better place through public service.”
Miller noted a sense of urgency as he watches elected leadership not act quickly enough with important issues. It’s something that he hopes to change by getting involved.
