State Rep. Rick Miller, R-Sugar Land, said he is putting in his bid for re-election to represent House District 26 in the Texas House of Representatives.
The 86th Texas Legislature concluded May 27.
House District 26 encompasses most of Sugar Land and portions of Richmond, including the communities of Greatwood, New Territory, Pecan Grove and Four Corners.
“I am humbled that the good people of Sugar Land and Richmond have elected me to serve four terms in the Texas House, and my hope is that I have worked to earn their trust to serve another term in 2020,” Miller said in a statement. “I was proud to work alongside my colleagues this session to truly transform the property tax system and public education funding, including property tax relief, teacher pay and TRS-Care.”
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Miller was first elected in 2012. He serves on the budget-writing committee, the House Committee on Appropriations and the Committee on Human Services, which oversees the vital state health services and foster care systems. Miller also chairs the Texas Legislative Veterans Caucus.
