LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR-ELECT WILL AINSWORTH APPOINTS LEGISLATIVE VETERAN JUDY MILLER AS CHIEF OF STAFF

Montgomery - Lieutenant Governor-elect Will Ainsworth announced on Monday that Judy Miller, who has worked for more than three decades as the executive director of the Marshall County Legislative Office, will serve as his chief of staff in the Alabama State House.

During her career directing the Marshall County Legislative Office, Miller worked with a dozen state legislators and was tasked with handling constituent casework, grant programs, research and development of legislation, scheduling, communications, and other state government duties.

“Judy Miller has more than 30 years of experience in working with legislators of both parties, drafting bills and resolutions, and handling constituent services, which will prove invaluable to the citizens of Alabama and to me, as lieutenant governor,” Ainsworth said.  “During my service as a state representative in Marshall County,  Judy’s professional and political talents were obvious, and I am proud to have her lead my staff and help enact my agenda.”

Miller, who is believed to be the first female appointed as chief of staff to an Alabama lieutenant governor, said she looks forward to the challenges that service in Montgomery offers.

“Throughout the past four years, I have witnessed firsthand Will Ainsworth’s commitment to the citizens in his legislative district and his deep desire to improve their quality of life.  Now he is ready to devote that same work ethic and vision to all Alabamians,” Miller said.  “Will has instructed me to make his lieutenant governor’s office the most active and responsive in Alabama history, and I will work hard to carry out that mission.”

Miller has a lengthy resume of community service in Marshall County which includes holding seats on the boards of the United Way of Marshall County, the Child Advocacy Center of Marshall County, and the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau.  A graduate of Leadership Marshall County, Miller founded the Marshall County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition and was selected as a “Local Hero” by the Sand Mountain Reporter newspaper in 2014. 

A life-long resident of Arab, she and her husband, Jimmy, a veteran law enforcement officer, have 2 married children and 2 grandchildren.
