Dan Miller is running for State Representative in the General Assembly for the 42nd District. As the eldest child of Italian and English immigrants, Miller was the first member of his family born in America. Raised by a single mom from an early age, his family instilled in him a strong appreciation and recognition of the special opportunities America offers. As a result, he has made public service an important part of his life. He enlisted in the Army National Guard after high school. While his military service was cut short due to a severe ankle injury, he engaged in national service as a Team Leader in the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corp. There, he led a team of people in community-building projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic. He also served as the director of a non-proﬁt summer camp for children, many of whom came from underprivileged backgrounds. While in law school, he chaired a public interest auction that raised money to support students pursuing service-based internships. He earned a community service award for organizing student volunteer efforts. Miller joined the Mt. Lebanon Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter shortly after moving there with his wife Kim in 2002. In 2011, he was awarded the Medal of Merit for his attempt to save the life of a three year old child from a devastating house ﬁre. In addition to coaching his son's soccer teams twice, Miller is a PTA member and a supporter of the Historical Society of Mt. Lebanon. Miller also maintains a special education private law practice, Daniel L. Miller, Attorney at Law, which is associated with the Ruder Law firm. He works to make sure that every child gets an appropriate, inclusive education that assists them in reaching their full potential. This challenging work offers insight into the daily struggles of teachers who want to assist all their students but are lacking proper support in the classroom, as well as the harsh realities of how declining state education assistance negatively impacts school districts, especially those in distress. Miller earned undergraduate degrees in education and history and was a substitute teacher while awaiting his entry into AmeriCorps. After graduating with a law degree from Catholic University, he served as an Allegheny County Public Defender. Assigned chiefly to the Juvenile Division, he worked hard to represent kids and help lead them out of trouble. Wishing to make a greater impact on the lives of children, Miller later became an Assistant County Solicitor. In this role he works to make sure kids are safe in their homes and receive a proper education. He currently serves as a board member of Outreach Teen and Family Services, a community organization that fosters emotionally healthy teens by providing counseling and educational programs. http://votedanmiller.com/
