Who is Joe Miller? Many people were asking this two years ago when Joe Miller was the Republican candidate for House District 8. Joe quit his job as a federal magistrate to run for public office because he wanted to make a difference. He lost his bid for the seat in a district dominated by a liberal agenda, but he is still active in making changes. Joe was recently elected District Chair of District 8 and even more recently selected as regional chair of the Alaska Republican Party.
Behind every man is a woman. In Joe Miller's case it's his wife, Kathleen Miller. This woman has so much energy, you could bottle up the excess and distribute it to the rest of the state. Joe and Kathleen have eight children and she still has time to help him in his private law practice in the old post office building downtown.
Joe is a graduate of West Point and of Yale Law School. He worked his way through law school by serving in the U.S. Army and earning a scholarship.
Here Joe has captured the ear of Representative John Coghill at a fundraiser for Hope Industries. Like Representative Coghill, Joe is smart, energetic, and a man of principle.
