Interview: Stratford Police Chief Tim Miller Running for 69th Assembly District

(OnFocus) Stratford Police Chief Tim Miller last week announced his candidacy for the Wisconsin 69th Assembly District. Miller will run as a Republican.

Miller began his 27-year law enforcement career as an undercover narcotics investigator. He held many different positions throughout his career including Field Training Officer, School Resource Officer and Detective.

If elected, he plans to continue in his position as police chief. “I did speak with our village board about that. Should I be elected, I’m gonna take my duties back a little bit but I plan on staying the chief of police in Stratford,” Miller said. “It’s very important to me. I started building this department up four years ago and hiring the right people, and I don’t want to lose that aspect.”

Miller sees politics as the next step of serving the community and saw the opportunity arise when Representative Bob Kulp announced he would not seek re-election in 2020.

“I’ve served 27 years in law enforcement. I’ve done everything I can to help communities, I’ve gotten to know communities, and now I want to take it to the state level and see what I can do to help there,” he said.

Miller has been married to his wife, Tirzah, for 20 years. They currently are raising their 3 teenagers in the Stratford area.
