Councilman Miller to Focus on Lowering Tax Rates in Third Term

Councilman Keith Miller was re-elected to Manassas Park City Council Tuesday.

Councilman Keith Miller said he intends to spend his next four-year term working to reduce fees and taxes in the city and restoring its general fund balance, among other things.

Continued economic growth will be the focus during his third term, just as it has been the focus of everything the council has done thus far, Miller said.

"... I will continue to strive to restore our fund balance, reduce rates, fees and taxes in the city.  Again, keeping to our mission and vision, I want to ensure Manassas Park is the Northern Virginia community in which to live, work and raise a family," Miller said. 

Miller, Councilman Bryan Polk and Mayor Frank Jones were all re-elected to their posts this week. They will be joined in January by Councilwoman-elect Jeanette Rishell, who defeated incumbent former Manassas Park Mayor and current Councilman William "Bill" Treuting.

Miller, who was re-elected to a third term, received , according to State Board of Elections data.

While the current council members are forward thinking and complement one another, they've always challenged each other, Miller said.

He's disappointed Treuting wasn't re-elected to council, but is ready to embrace that change and continue working cohesively, Miller said. 

Miller has lived in Manassas Park for 10 years and has one son.

Thank you for speaking with Patch, Keith! Patch peeps, do you have any questions you want to post here for the councilman?

Jamie, I'm willing to bet the absence of comments or questions is just indicative of voter fatigue. We are all just numb from the past year of national electioneering. For my part, I congratulate all those elected and re-elected to the city council, and thank Mr. Treuting for all his hard work and hours of service to our city. I think we are blessed to have such devoted people in place, looking out for our little city's best interest. Good luck to all!
