Former Hamilton County Commissioner Lou Miller dies

by Dan Whisenhunt

Former Hamilton County Commissioner Lou Miller passed away Thursday evening, according to County Commission Chairman Larry Henry and Commissioner Joe Graham.

Miller, 86, served as District 6 commissioner from 2004 to 2006 when she was defeated by John Allen Brooks. Commissioners had appointed Miller in 2004 to complete the term of her late husband, Ben Miller.

Graham, who defeated Brooks last year in the District 6 race, said Miller had been ill for a long time.

“Between her and her husband both they had about 100 years of community service,” Graham said. “She was very good to me. I loved hear dearly and I'll be praying for her family.”
