County Public Information Officer Casey Miller files for County Commissioner to replace retiring Commissioner Doug Hunt
County Commissioner Candidate for Position #1, Casey Miller, has launched a countywide survey and has articulated his campaign themes. His website is: www.caseymillercommissioner.com
Miller’s core themes include customer service, communications and community engagement, emergency preparedness and what he calls a “thriving community” which includes subjects such as housing, physical and mental health, economic development and other topics.
“I may have put the cart before the horse by immediately launching a countywide survey,” said Miller. “But Traditional surveys and micro surveys will be a permanent theme of my campaign and my vision for more community engagement with our citizens should I be elected. A constant feedback loop with the community is standard operating procedure for my goal to modernize Lincoln County’s governmental communications outreach.”
A notable advantage for Miller in the candidate lineup is his 13 years of service to the Citizens of Lincoln County as the Commissioner’s Public Information Officer. During his tenure he has seen many policies that have possibly fallen short of their potential to reach a broader community. The County Commissioners Office has not utilized social media, nor have they taken much initiative to reach the community outside of traditional media releases and weekly commissioner meetings.
“I am grateful for the precision coverage of the News-Times and other local media. Without the contributions of local journalism, we might be suffering from less than adequate community engagement. Now more than ever the community is pressed for time to engage with local government. As a County Commissioner it will be my goal to meet the community with modern digital software platforms that provide text messaging, surveys and notifications that allow the community to provide more feedback to maximize their civic impact and responsibilities,” said Miller.
Casey Miller can be found online and on many social media platforms. He plans to do a series of virtual town hall meetings throughout his campaign and plans to make them a permanent feature of how he will engage the community as a newly elected County Commissioner.
Due to work hours Mr. Miller asks that he be reached before 8am, between 12 noon and 1pm, after 5pm, as well as on weekends.
Thank you for your time,
