Jimmy Miller - Part 2


Progress Staff Writer

Part 2 of 3

Following his retirement Pauldingite Jimmy Miller returned to Paulding for a golf outing with family members. Last week we introduced you to this humble man who has spent 53 years working in the field of federal service. 36 of those years were on The Hill.

On Feb. 28, 1987, Jimmy Miller retired from the Air Force and the next day he accepted a job on Capitol Hill with the House of Representatives with Congressman Bob Roe. Roe had just been selected chairman of the Science and Technology Committee working on the Subcommittee on International Cooperation for Science.

In 1989, Miller joined the staff of the Committee on Public Works and Transportation in the House of Representatives as the director for Facilities and Travel (name of committee was changed in 1994 to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure).
