Homeless Advocate Secures Libertarian Party Nomination for Commonwealth Court
Pittsburgh - June 2, 2017 - Pittsburgh attorney, Drew G. Miller, became the Libertarian Party candidate for Commonwealth Court at the party’s state convention and is now seeking signatures to be on the November ballot . He is the party’s only statewide candidate, and if elected, would become the youngest member of the 9-judge appellate court at just 37 year of age.
Miller, a self-described political centrist, is running for a judicial seat in order to offer voters a 3rd party option, and to recreate a Constitution-centered judiciary. He has chosen to run for Commonwealth Court because it has original jurisdiction over lawsuits against the government. “Every state law that impacts your civil liberties on issues such as marijuana, gender equality, guns, education, healthcare and the environment, would likely begin or end with the Commonwealth Court,” said Miller, “Simply put, the Commonwealth Court could be the first -- and last -- defense against government overreach, and I promise that if elect, I will diligently work to protect all Pennsylvanians from government injustices.”
As former Legal Counsel to the Majority Whip of the Pennsylvania Senate, Miller has 3 years of experience working for the government where he helped to resolve over 3,000 constituent issues. However, he is most passionate about his role as Board President of one of the largest human services organization in Pittsburgh, where he advocates ending homelessness and hunger in Allegheny County.
“The Commonwealth Court handles cases mostly involving state government or its agencies. Therefore electing Libertarian Drew Gray Miller becomes extremely important as the State increases regulations and expands taxation across the Commonwealth. Major victories can happen rapidly that restore freedoms and strike down bad laws” said Drew Bingaman Chair of the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania of the Party’s support for Mr. Miller. In order to be on the November ballot, Miller must obtain at least 2,500 signatures from registered PA voters, including a minimum of 250 signatures each from at least 5 counties, by August 1st. The Libertarian Party of PA is calling on all of its members, and anyone who would like to see a 3rd party option, to get signatures.
