Miller hopes to help fix citizen problems

If Judy Miller is elected to Russellville City Council District 2, she hopes to focus on improved communication between the council and the people of the district.

“I just think when people have a problem, I might not can fix a problem, but I want to look into it, and I want to get back to them,” Miller said. “People like to hear feedback. I think a lot of times they don’t get that feedback.”

Although Miller doesn’t have a background in politics, she said running for city council has appealed to her for quite some time.

“I’ve always thought about it, but I just never really gave it much credence,” she said. “I just decided I wanted to try and see if I could make a difference.”

Miller said she will prioritize supporting business owners in Russellville – she was a business owner herself for a few years, owning Northside Grocery – and bringing new businesses and industries into the city.

“If I can help somebody, I’d like to do that. I like to see people happy,” Miller said. “I don’t know a lot about politics; I just know I will do my best.”

Miller has worked in the Russellville High School cafeteria for 22 years. She has worked as a cook for First Baptist Church on Wednesday nights and worked at Northside for 13 years of Saturdays. “I know what it is to work hard and try to make your money go somewhere,” she said.

She has two sons, Matt and Jason, and three grandchildren, Hunter, Noah and Jaxon – “the lights of my life.”

If elected to serve, Miller said, “I’ll listen, and I’ll try my best to do what I can to help the people of Russellville and District 2.”
