Miller Announces Run for Mayorship

On Tuesday, Lubbock businessman David Miller made the announcement that he will run for mayor in 2006. Miller made it official at Lubbock's American Wind and Power Center. An ideal location for a candidate who says it's time to let the winds of change blow into city leadership. Miller's campaign treasurer says of his longtime friend, "He's a man of great integrity, moral character. He's just a first class individual."

Miller calls his candidacy for Mayor of Lubbock a call to duty. He says, "It's time to give back to this great community that has given so much to our family through the years." Miller has never held public office, but has served as a political lobbyist for more than 30 years and says he understands the political machine. He says, "One thing this businessman would bring to the table is a strategic plan. If someone were to ask, 'What's the first thing you would do in office?' I suggest we re-visit foundational issues of our city; the vision, the mission, and the value statement."

Miller's wife, Jayne Ann, says of her husband, "After 32 years of marriage we've had lots of adventures and this is one more adventure we're looking forward to. David is very creative innovative and friendly." And he's honest when it comes to the issue of sales inside city limits. Miller joked, "I think I should have a campaign poster that says 'It's Miller time." All kidding aside though, he said that issue is for the voters to decide.

Miller already has a very strong support base as he kicks off his campaign. He says he's been overwhelmed. 500 to 600 people have already gone on the record with their support. He's got 250 volunteers working on his campaign. Also, Miller says he's well on his way to raising his goal of $100,000 in campaign funds.

So far Miller is the only person running for mayor. Mayor Marc McDougal is not seeking re-election.
