WARD 10 COUNCILMAN
EUGENE R. MILLER
Cleveland City Councilman Eugene R. Miller brings a rare breed of dedication to Ward 10. Councilman Miller won his seat in 2009 after serving the remaining term of Councilman Roosevelt Coats.
It was a long road to Cleveland City Council. Councilman Miller survived failures in his entrepreneur endeavors. He struggled as a single father to raise his young daughter. And he has suffered many of the same hardships that many people in their early 20s face in his community. His life changed in 1995 when he obtained his GED, providing hope that he would one day become a professional and a productive member of society. Councilman Miller worked his way through Baldwin-Wallace College, receiving a bachelor’s degree in sociology. He is working on a MBA from Tiffin University.
His foray into public service comes from a deep desire to provide opportunities for people. He served as campaign manager in two judicial campaigns, and he was a field manager in the 2005 campaign of Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson.
He served in the Ohio House of Representatives prior to his service with Cleveland City Council. While at the Statehouse, Councilman Miller served as Chair of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee and Vice Chair of the Housing Urban Revitalization Committee. He also served as a member of the Criminal Justice Committee and the Financial Institutions, Real Estate and Securities Committee and was Chair of the House and Senate Cancer Caucus. During his last 5 months in office, he introduced 11 bills and succeeded in getting several provisions inserted into the House version of the biennium operating budget.
Councilman Miller plans to use the resources in his district, the City of Cleveland and the state in an effort to serve the residents of Ward 10. His priorities include ensuring public safety for his residents and fostering economic development in the neighborhoods.
Councilman Miller builds bridges between people with opposing ideas. He has found that simply listening is an effective form of education. Councilman Miller’s ultimate goal is to bring that hope and optimism home, helping Cleveland realize its potential as one of America’s great cities.
