Ohio House Democratic Leader Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) today appointed state Rep. Adam Miller (D-Columbus) Caucus Chair for the Ohio House Democrats, a position charged with building and strengthening legislative relationships both in Columbus and throughout the state.


“Rep. Miller knows how to work hard and bring people together. That’s what he’s done throughout his time in the military and in public service,” said Strahorn. “He exemplifies the kind of leadership we need to chair our caucus over the next two years as we fight for the issues that matter most to working families—issues like healthcare access, good schools and better-paying jobs.”


Miller is a Colonel with over 20 years of service in the U.S. Army Reserve, serving as Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps officer and Brigade level Commander. He also served with the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan in 2004.


“It is an honor to be named Ohio House Democratic Caucus Chair today,” said Miller. “I look forward to building and strengthening relationships with local officials and community leaders across the state to work together to improve the lives of everyday Ohioans.”


In addition, Miller also serves as an adjunct instructor for the Reserve Component National Security Seminar at the National Defense University. Miller earned his J.D. from Capital University Law School and formerly chaired the Ohio State Bar Association’s Education Law and Military and Veterans Affairs Committees. He also helped establish Operation Legal Help Ohio’s statewide pro bono project for Ohio veterans.
