(Madison) – Today Senator Mark Miller (D-Madison) announced his retirement after more than 20 years in the State Senate and State Assembly. Representative Gary Hebl (D-Sun Prairie) released the following statement thanking him for his public service:
Senator Mark Miller has been a staunch progressive for Dane County for two decades. I am sad that he has decided to retire but at the same time I am grateful for all he has done for his district.
I have had the distinct pleasure of being able to work with Sen. Miller since my first day in the Assembly. He has been a friend and a colleague, and I have watched in awe at how at ease he is with his constituents and how hard he has fought for them. I will never forget his tireless leadership in the fight for worker’s rights during the Act 10 debate and his continued work to protect Wisconsin’s natural resources.
Senator Miller’s progressive leadership will be greatly missed in Dane County. I would like to congratulate him on the work he has done as an advocate for the people of Wisconsin. We are truly indebted to him for all he has done and wish him all the best in retirement
