Dan Miller announces bid for re-election to Nevada County Board of Supervisors
May 31, 2017
Dan Miller, the Nevada County supervisor who represents District 3, announced Wednesday that he'll run for re-election next year.
Miller is in his first term as supervisor for the district that represents Grass Valley. He said he wants to continue serving in that role, focusing on issues like homelessness and housing.
"You can't get this job done in four years," Miller said when asked how he'd respond to someone questioning why they should vote for him.
"Problems stemming from housing and homelessness aren't quickly solved, but instead require people who understand the community and can help coordinate resources. The Board of Supervisors needs consistency, along with thoughtful deliberation and community involvement, to find solutions to those problems," Miller said.
"I'm well acquainted with the community," he added. "I'm someone people can trust."
Miller noted that he's chairman of the Regional Housing Authority, representative to the Rural County Representatives of California and serves on the county's transportation commission, Local Agency Formation Commission and several other committees — appointments that aid him in his duties as a supervisor.

"Frankly, this is not a job you learn overnight," Miller said in a release.
Miller said people can agree on certain core aspects of the community — the need for public safety, economic stability, strong schools, property rights, the protection of natural resources and "thoughtful, responsible" marijuana regulations.
"I'm not a politician," Miller said. "I'm just someone who cares about the community."
No other candidate has openly declared for the District 3 supervisor seat.
