He has lived in Glendale for 40 years. Miller is a graduate of Archbishop Molloy High School and attended Queens College and the CUNA Management School at the University of Georgia. He was branch manager of the Tiger Federal Credit Union. He also served as member of Queens Community Board 5.

Miller has been a member of the New York State Assembly since 2009, when he won a special election held after the resignation of former Assemblyman Anthony Seminerio. Miller won the subsequent 2010 general election with 69 percent of the vote.

Early life and career

Miller was born to an Italian mother and German father, both first generation immigrants.

Same sex marriage

On December 2, 2009, Miller sided with the conservative minority, by voting against a bill legalizing same-sex marriage. Miller voted against a similar bill that became the Marriage Equality Act in 2011.


In New York, candidates for special election are nominated by the party's county executive's selection. Miller's party nomination was met with a lawsuit filed by fellow Democrats. His nomination was seen by some as a back room deal. Al Baldeo, who claims he was promised the nomination by Congressman Gregory Meeks, State Senators John Sampson and Malcolm Smith, argued that the selection process was undemocratic. Farouk Samaroo argued that the selection process was to prevent an Indian-American on the ballot.


The New York Daily News reported that Miller was among the Assemblymen that refuse to disclose his outside income. This came 14 weeks after the state legislature publicly supported and approved a bill requiring them to disclose their outside income. The bill that was vetoed by Governor David Paterson.
