Miller remembered as champion for education

WILLIAMSBURG — Sen.. John Miller, D-Newport News, who passed away suddenly Monday at age 68 from an apparent heart attack will be remembered in greater Williamsburg as a fighter for public education.

Miller was born in Bryn Mawr, Pa. and educated at Northern Illinois University. He worked for 18 years as a television journalist in the region and also served as an aide to former U.S. Senator Paul Trible and an administrator at Christopher Newport University.

First elected to the Virginia Senate in 2007, Miller came to represent Williamsburg and portions of James City County in the 2011 redistricting. He was elected to his third term in office last November.
