Decatur resident and businesswoman Lindy Miller has won the Democratic primary for Georgia’s Public Service Commissioner, District 3.

Strong early results on election night showed a decisive lead for Miller, who declared victory around 9:45 p.m.

“I am incredibly humbled to be one step closer to being able to serve the citizens of Georgia and work to rein in utility bills for families and small businesses,” Miller said. “I want to thank each of my supporters for believing in me and sharing our vision for a Georgia where people from all walks of life have access to safe, clean, and affordable energy.”

 

 

Miller, who is running on a platform fighting for economic justice and improving access to utilities, ran a campaign that received donations from over 1,500 donors and has been endorsed by more than 70 community leaders and organizations across Georgia, according to a campaign press release.

Some of her endorsers include Andrew Young, Jon Ossoff, environmental activist Laura Turner Seydel and more.

“This campaign is about making sure that bills are affordable,” Miller said. “It is about bringing renewable energy to Georgia and all of the jobs that come with the advanced energy economy. And most importantly, it is about making sure our growth is inclusive and lifts families up. That is the vision I have for the Georgia Public Service Commission, and I appreciate your support as we continue making that vision a reality in November!”

General elections will be November 6, 2018. If elected, Miller will be the first female Democrat to be elected to the position.
