Dan Miller announces bid for re-election to Nevada County Board of Supervisors

Dan Miller, the Nevada County supervisor who represents District 3, announced Wednesday that he’ll run for re-election next year.

Miller is in his first term as supervisor for the district that represents Grass Valley. He said he wants to continue serving in that role, focusing on issues like homelessness and housing.

“You can’t get this job done in four years,” Miller said when asked how he’d respond to someone questioning why they should vote for him.

“Problems stemming from housing and homelessness aren’t quickly solved, but instead require people who understand the community and can help coordinate resources. The Board of Supervisors needs consistency, along with thoughtful deliberation and community involvement, to find solutions to those problems,” Miller said.
