State Rep. Rick Miller (R-Sugar Land) announced he will seek re-election to represent House District 26 in the Texas House of Representatives.
House District 26 covers some of the most populated areas of Fort Bend County, including the communities of Greatwood, New Territory, Pecan Grove, Four Corners and the cities of Richmond and Sugar Land.
“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.
“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.
Many citizens and state leaders have named the 86th legislative session the most accomplished session in Texas history, and I feel honored to have been part of it.”
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 state health services and foster care systems. Miller also chairs the Texas Legislative Veterans Caucus.
“Although this past session was successful, there is still a great deal of work to be done for the people of Texas and District 26,” Miller said.
“I look forward to coming back next session to ensure that Texas remains the best state to live, work and raise a family.”
