ABOUT: Dennis Miller (Nonpartisan)
Phone: (206) 799-1466 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Elected Experience: During my 50 years as a registered voter, this is the first time I will be on a ballot. I will be hearing ideas and looking at the issues of our community without the influence of any past political bias. Other Professional Experience: I have 40 years of experience as a General Contractor and small business owner. I will bring professionalism and a commitment to honesty, integrity, and open communication to my candidacy and the council. Education: College: Humboldt State University, Area of study: Industrial Arts Community Service: I spent thirteen years in the youth sports of soccer, baseball, and softball known as “Coach Dennis”.
Statement: When I told my family I was considering running for council, my daughter, a Political Science major asked, “Why should I vote for you? What issues and concerns are important to you?” What happened to, “Wonderful Dad, of course, I’ll vote for you?” Instead, I heard questions from a concerned voter needing to know more. My campaign answers would be: stewarding our environment, growth at a reasonable pace, city services that work for all, island businesses staying vital, housing options for all, improving roads, bike lanes, hiking trails, and a few dozen more. These are the expected political answers, but I’m not speaking as a politician. I’m a husband, a father, and every day I care for family and home and work to be a considerate neighbor. Simple yes, but my personal values will be at the core of my decision making as a council member. As a future council member, Family encompasses our Bainbridge community, Home, is our entire island, and Neighborhood is our responsibility to look beyond our shore. My focus, goal, and desire will always be to keep Bainbridge an amazing place where we all feel fortunate to be living.
