Millers Endorse Bieda for Macomb County Clerk/Register of Deeds
State Sen. Steve Bieda Wins Support of Former Macomb County Treasurer and State Representative Derek Miller and former State Senate Democratic Leader Art Miller Jr.
WARREN, MI — State Senator Steve Bieda (D-Warren) today received two more big endorsements for his Macomb County Clerk and Register of Deeds campaign. Former Macomb County Treasurer and State Representative Derek Miller and former State Senate Democratic Leader Art Miller Jr. are supporting Bieda.
“Steve Bieda has always been passionate about protecting the right to vote and making sure that his constituents have a voice. He was a great partner when we served in the Michigan Legislature together. I look forward to working side by side with him in Macomb County government,” said Derek Miller, Chief of Operations for Prosecutor Eric Smith, who served as both Macomb County Treasurer and State Representative.
Derek Miller has continued his family’s long tradition of public service in Macomb County. His father, Art Miller Jr., served in the Michigan Senate for 26 years. Art Miller Jr.’s father, Art Miller Sr., was the first mayor of Warren, and his mother, Edna Miller, was the first woman elected as Macomb County Clerk, a position she held for over 20 years.
“My mother, Edna Miller, laid a foundation of leadership and innovation as the first woman elected county clerk in Macomb. Sadly, that foundation had crumbled under Karen Spranger. I know that we can count on Steve Bieda to restore dignity to the Clerk’s Office that people came to expect for decades,” said former State Senate Democratic Leader Art Miller Jr.
Bieda currently serves as Assistant Senate Democratic Floor Leader. In his more than 13 years serving in the Michigan House and Senate, Bieda has been a leader on holding politicians to high ethical standards, fighting foreclosures, and protecting and strengthening the right to vote. Bieda was named MIRS’ 2017 “Michigan Democrat of the Year.” Bieda’s campaign for Macomb County Clerk and Register of Deeds has already been endorsed by more than 30 local leaders.
“I have known Art Miller for decades and Derek Miller since he was born. Art, Derek, and the entire Miller family have done so much to make Macomb County the great place it is today. I am grateful for their support and it is a tremendous vote of confidence in my campaign for Macomb County Clerk,” said State Senator Steve Bieda (D-Warren).
Bieda currently represents the 9th State Senate District that includes the communities of Center Line, Eastpointe, Fraser, Roseville, Warren, and a portion of Clinton Township, and has been a State Senator since 2011. From 2003 to 2008, Bieda served as State Representative for the 25th State House District, representing Warren and Sterling Heights.
