Brett Miller is running for re-election as State Representative.
A lifelong Pennsylvanian, Brett Miller is committed to continuing the 41st
District’s proud tradition of straight-talking, reform-minded leadership in the
Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Born in the Poconos region, Brett moved to Lancaster County nearly 30 years
ago, right after completing his graduate degree. Career-wise, Brett has
helped thousands of students walk the path to maturity as a school guidance
counselor, first at Garden Spot School District for four years, and then for the
next 21 years at Warwick School District. Always one to care for and
challenge the students to grow in knowledge, strength and character, Brett
has consistently been drawn to roles where he can be of service to others.
Brett is married to his wife, Jennifer, a 4th grade teacher with the Lancaster
Mennonite School. The Millers have put down deep roots in their East
Hempfield neighborhood, attend church in Manor Township, and believe that
the beauty, the vitality, and the community-mindedness of the 41st district
make it an excellent place to live.
Brett is a social and fiscal conservative and has sought to bring a respectful
and common-sense approach to local government.
In his previous service as an East Hempfield township supervisor, Brett has
earned a reputation as a true friend to the taxpayer. Recognized for his
leadership skills, he was elected by his peers to serve as board chairman for
four years. In this role, he was responsible for leading the board in setting
policies and direction for the management of a $14 million budget, 66 full time
employees, public safety services, public infrastructure needs, traffic
management and public recreation. Beyond his work as a supervisor on the
local level, Brett was also appointed and elected to leadership positions in
county and statewide governmental organizations, which only deepened his
understanding of how to make government work.
Through tough choices, wise management, and a considerable dose of
courage, Brett led Lancaster County’s second-largest township from facing a
dismal fiscal outlook to a sizable surplus – all without raising taxes or cutting
On the personal side, Brett is a long distance runner who has competed in
and finished eight marathons. He’s a member of the NRA, a Penn State
football fan, and a pretty decent guitar player.
Brett holds principal and counselor certifications from Penn State University
and Millersville University, and has earned a Master’s degree and a
Bachelor’s degree from Liberty University.
