To the editor:
If you have not met Helen Miller, our state representative, let me introduce her. She is the energetic woman that for the last 10 years has fought for large scale improvements for our district. Rep. Miller introduced bipartisan legislation which resulted in additional funding for Highway 20, authored legislation for the creation of the Gypsum City Off Highway Vehicle Park, OHV infrastructure, funding of the fuel quality lab at Iowa Central Community College (that led to the construction of the BioScience/BioHealth Building on campus), authored legislation for funding for the community based correctional facility in Fort Dodge, the legalization of rear stabilizers for motorcycles and founded Urban Ag Academy (educating urban and minority legislators on ag issues).
Helen has been involved in service to numerous local organizations, and is the founder and organizer of the Artful Dodger Project. She is a member of the Iowa Bar State Association, Iowa Council for Agriculture Education and the Iowa African American Hall of Fame. Nationally, she is a member and former board member of State Agricultural and Rural Leaders, a state director for Women in Government, and the National Black Caucus of State Legislators executive committee and chair of its Agriculture Policy Committee.
With Helen Miller's impeccable credentials and experience it is no wonder that she has been endorsed by: Iowa Farm Bureau, Iowa Association of Business and Industry, American Federation of, State, County and Municipal Employees, Iowa Corn Growers, Iowa Federation of Labor, Iowa Renewable Fuels Association and the Iowa State Education Association.
Helen and her husband, the late Dr. Edward Miller (retired from the U.S. Air Force after 30 years of service) made Fort Dodge their home and embraced this community from day one. They raised three talented children and have five loving grandsons. Please give state Rep. Helen Miller your vote, showing her how much you appreciate her efforts by keeping her experienced voice working for us.
