Councilman Miller to Focus on Lowering Tax Rates in Third Term
Councilman Keith Miller was re-elected to Manassas Park City Council Tuesday.
Councilman Keith Miller said he intends to spend his next four-year term working to reduce fees and taxes in the city and restoring its general fund balance, among other things.
Continued economic growth will be the focus during his third term, just as it has been the focus of everything the council has done thus far, Miller said.
"... I will continue to strive to restore our fund balance, reduce rates, fees and taxes in the city. Again, keeping to our mission and vision, I want to ensure Manassas Park is the Northern Virginia community in which to live, work and raise a family," Miller said.
Miller, Councilman Bryan Polk and Mayor Frank Jones were all re-elected to their posts this week. They will be joined in January by Councilwoman-elect Jeanette Rishell, who defeated incumbent former Manassas Park Mayor and current Councilman William "Bill" Treuting.
Miller, who was re-elected to a third term, received 1,023 of the 4,278 votes casted at precinct one and 861 of the 3,721 votes casted at precinct two on Tuesday, according to State Board of Elections data.
While the current council members are forward thinking and complement one another, they've always challenged each other, Miller said.
He's disappointed Treuting wasn't re-elected to council, but is ready to embrace that change and continue working cohesively, Miller said.
Miller has lived in Manassas Park for 10 years and has one son.
