Virginia Beach, VA, 30 year Navy veteran, Commander Nannette Miller announced her bid for the Princess Anne area district seat challenging longtime politician Barbara Henley who has been in office since 1978. Miller brings an impressive resume and a wealth of community connections to her bid for council holding a Master’s degree in American Government from Regent University, participating as an active parent in the Kellam High School PTA and serving as Vice-Chairwoman of the Virginia Beach Republican Party helping Governor Youngkin win his election this past November.
“Last winter, Glenn Youngkin announced his bid for Governor at the Princess Anne County Grill where I had the opportunity to hear his positive message for making Virginia one of the top states to live, work and own a business. I was a proud member of the Women for Glenn Youngkin coalition and I believe that he is doing great things as our Governor.” Miller said.
Like Governor Youngkin, Miller believes in lowering the cost of living for Virginia Beach residents, supporting law enforcement and our first responders, while ensuring Virginia Beach has a business friendly climate.
As a member of council, Miller will support: lower taxes, addressing flooding from the Southern watershed, alleviating congestion on Sandbridge Road, maintaining the city’s ARP Agricultural Reserve Program, ensuring the integrity of our neighborhoods and protecting citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights.
As a member of Council, Miller stressed the importance of collaborating with the other council members on issues
“To accomplish what needs to be done for the citizens, members of council must do their homework and bring real solutions to the table so that we can come together for a dialogue on how to address our challenges. That is what we did in the Navy and the council could learn a thing or two from the Navy about accomplishing the mission.” Miller said.
Miller’s experience as a Naval Officer combined with her experience as the wife of a Navy Seal brings a special perspective on issues facing military personnel both active duty and retired. Once elected Miller hopes to serve as the council liaison for the city's MEDAC Military Economic Development Advisory Committee and to focus on working with the Hampton Roads Workforce Council to help military personnel exiting the service transition to the local workplace. Additionally, Miller believes our taxes on veterans retirement are too high and supports reducing that burden on America’s heroes.
“The citizens deserve a choice this fall on who they want to represent them on council for the coming years and I am putting my resume in front of each voter and asking for them to hire me to work for my community.” Miller stated.
Voters will vote for a new Princess Anne area city council representative on November 8th.
