ith more than 20 years of experience as a successful businessman, and 8 years serving as both the Mayor and a Councilman of Corona, Jeff Miller was elected to the State Assembly in 2008 to represent the 71st Assembly District, which takes in much of Western Riverside County and the Eastern edge of Orange County.
Assemblyman Miller's service to his community began in 1995 when he was appointed as a Parks Commissioner in Corona. By 2000, he ascended to the City Council, where he kept his goals simple: keep the economy growing, the budget balanced, the community safe, and get the roads moving. By 2004, Mayor Miller was re-elected by a wide margin.
Through his work in Corona, Jeff built a reputation as a coalition-builder and a problem-solver, traits that served him well as he was tapped to serve in a number of leadership roles in regional government boards and agencies. As a member of the Riverside County Transportation Commission, Jeff became one of the region's leading experts on transportation issues, and eventually was tapped to Chair the bi-county 91 Freeway Toll Road Advisory Committee. In addition, Jeff has served on the Western Riverside Council of Governments since 2001, serving as Chairman from 2005-2007.
Believing that public safety is the first priority of government, Jeff became the first statewide Co-Chair of the Jessica's Law campaign in 2005, helping protect children from sexual predators by ushering in the most sweeping overhaul of the state's penal code in a generation.
Jeff Miller served as Chairman of the Riverside County Republican Party from 2006 - 2008, overseeing one of the most successful election cycles for the Party in recent years.
In the State Assembly, Jeff represents California's 71st Assembly District which takes in portions of Orange County and Riverside County. It encompasses the cities of Anaheim, Corona, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Norco, Orange, Rancho Santa Margarita, Santa Ana, and Tustin.
Jeff graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 1985. He has been married for 21 years to his wife Debora; they have two daughters.
