(BINGHAMTON, NY) – Local businessman and West side resident Josh Miller today announced his campaign for Binghamton City Council. Miller made the announcement joined by his family at their Lathrop Avenue home in the City’s Third District.
“Binghamton is on the verge of a tremendous comeback; we are finally headed in the right direction,”said Miller. “There is more work to be done, but I’m confident with my business background, leadership skills and deep roots in our community, I can help make the positive changes we need in the Third District and throughout Binghamton.”
For 17 years Miller has been employed by the Miller Motor Car Corporation in Vestal, where he is currently the Business Manager.
“Having lived, worked and volunteered in our community for so long, I’ve had the pleasure to meet and speak with thousands of local residents,” said Miller. “I know our community’s strengths, I recognize areas in need of improvement, and I feel I have the necessary skills to move Binghamton forward.”
Miller says he will use his background in business to help further develop job opportunities and grow the local economy. Crime, infrastructure improvements, and continuing to preserve the history of the Third District while embracing students and landlords as Binghamton University continues to grow, are among his goals.
Miller is actively involved in the United Way of Broome County and is a past Board Member of the Tri-Cities Opera and Binghamton University Athletic Club. He is a supporter of Roberson Museum and Science Center and the UHS Foundation.
Miller, a Republican, is married with three children. His wife, Heather, is an attorney for United Health Services. He is a graduate of Syracuse University.
