Columbus City Councilmember A. Troy Miller Resigns
Last November, Columbus voters elected to give Councilmember A. Troy Miller another four years in office. Yesterday he decided that he only needed nine months. Miller confirmed via press release that he would be stepping down from office at the end of September.
“I’m proud and thankful to have been able to serve the residents of Columbus as a member of Columbus City Council,” said Miller. “I would like to express my gratitude both to the residents of this great community for placing their faith and trust in me, and also to my Council colleagues, with whom I have been honored to serve.”
In addition to his council duties, Miller is the founder of iSpecData, a local web application and consulting firm that focuses on the health management technology field. Miller is leaving council to pursue professional opportunities that will take him outside of the city.
Miller has served City Council since January 2009 when he was appointed to fill one of two vacant seat that were left open upon the resignation of former Councilmembers Maryellen O’Shaughnessy and Kevin Boyce. He was elected for his first full term in November 2009, and reelected in 2013 for a second term.
The remaining members of Columbus City Council are expected to announce an appointment process within a few weeks to select a new councilmember to fill the vacancy left by Miller. Once appointed, that new councilmember will serve through 2015 when they would run to fill the seat officially through 2017.
