JULY 14, 1997
Bob Miller announced last week he will be running for reelection to the Woodinville City Council this fall.
Miller currently serves as mayor, a position he was unanimously elected to by the council in January, 1996. "I would consider it an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of Woodinville for another term," Miller said.
Miller, 51, is one of the original city councilmembers, dating back to the interim City Council elected in November, 1992. He served as Woodinville's deputy mayor before becoming mayor. He said the past five years working for the city have been gratifying.
"I am extremely proud of the fact that I have kept my promise to not raise taxes the standard 106 percent each year. We have in fact kept the rate just about $1.60 per thousand [of assessed value] or less each of the past five years," Miller said.
"I feel that although we have come a long way, there are still many things to do," he added.
Miller currently works for the Seattle Police Department. He has been employed with the City of Seattle and as a park ranger. He, his wife and two children have lived in Woodinville since 1978. He has been involved with the community as a fire commissioner as well as serving on the board of the Northshore Youth Basketball Association.
