Former P.G. Chief Scott Miller to announce run for sheriff
Monday, January 25, 2010
Scott Miller, former police chief and councilman for Pacific Grove, says he will run for Monterey County sheriff, joining challenger Fred Garcia in a bid to unseat Sheriff Mike Kanalakis.
“I respect the two previously declared candidates for Sheriff and their long careers as fellow law enforcement professionals, but I believe I offer an alternative to their candidacies that voters will find refreshing," Miller said in a prepared statement. "I plan to run a vigorous campaign, based on my qualifications and track record as a law enforcement professional and public servant, which I believe will show I am well-qualified to lead the Monterey County Sheriff’s Department into the future.
Miller was P.G.'s chief from 1997 to 2003 and served four years on the City Council. He says he will officially announce his candidacy Monday, Feb. 1.
