Doris Miller has worked as an elementary school teacher in Greencastle for 24 years, and is no stranger to Township politics. She is running for Greencastle Township Trustee in the November elections.
Miller has three main goals as Greencastle Township Trustee. First, that greater attention be paid to the process of picking the Township representative on the School Board, with an emphasis on using an open process to find the most qualified person for the job, regardless of political party.
Her second goal is to work to increase support for the Greencastle Township Fire Department, so that they can continue to improve their service to the Township.
Thirdly, Miller supports finding ways to better implement poor-relief, bringing better access to Township resources to those with short-term need.
She is running with three candidates who are active in the Township as her advisory board: Charles Miles, Rita Pearson and Marilyn Lawrence.
Miller pledges to work with her advisory board to spend tax dollars wisely.
"We will work hard in the best interest of the Township. Together we can make a positive difference," she said.
A graduate of Indiana State University and DePauw, Miller is also the daughter of Greencastle's "Dan the Coney Man."
