Retired pastor enters District 50 Assembly race

Posted: Updated:
REEDSBURG (WKOW) -- Chris Miller announced Monday he is a candidacy for Wisconsin’s 50th State Assembly District.

In a news release, Miller said he's a retired pastor who now lives in La Valle.

“I have seen my members struggle to overcome obstacles such as financial burden, illnesses and family crises. All too often it's the policies coming from Madison that make their struggles harder not easier. I'm running for Assembly to ease the burdens on working families in south west Wisconsin,” Miller said in the release. “I know we share similar values and experiences, and now we need a voice in Madison that will speak up for all the people, and not just for the wealthiest or the poorest among us.  We need to create an environment where everyone who is willing to work hard should be able to make it into the Middle Class. We deserve better than what our current leaders, in both parties, are apparently willing to do or able to imagine. Their hollow words and actions invite and require us to raise our voices and cast our votes for a change of leadership. “
 
Miller says he spent 35 years in ordained ministry, serving churches in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri. Chris and his wife, Donna, have three children, two of whom are still in Wisconsin and one who lives in Missouri.
 
District 50 includes all or part of  Juneau, Sauk and Richland counties. The seat is currently held by Republican Edward Brooks.
