Support for Miller for city council
To the editor:
Several years ago, the city of Sanibel’s finances, in particular the pension program, was in less than stellar shape. After Kevin Ruane was elected to the council, we saw how important it is that we have someone with financial expertise on the council. Ruane is now on the Lee County Board of County Commissioners and none of the current members have this expertise.
While all six of the candidates running have their strong points, Mike Miller is the only one that has the financial expertise that is needed on the council. Miller’s financial qualifications include: an MBA from the University of Michigan; certified public accountant and certified financial analyst; served as a vice president of finance for a Fortune 500 company; and served on the city’s Finance Committee. Miller has offered leadership positions in several not-for-profit organizations on Sanibel and served the city in other capacities. Miller not only has the expertise that we need on the council, he also has a thorough understanding of what makes Sanibel such an outstanding community.
Miller will get my vote, and I urge you to give him your strongest consideration.
