Derek E. Miller has hit the ground running bringing a fresh and exciting new vision to the Macomb County Treasurer’s Office. Miller states, “This Office will focus on customer friendly service, putting every resource available at our residents’ finger tips! We are going to move this Treasurer’s Office into the 21st Century.” Miller received his bachelor degree in political science from Michigan State University and his juris doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. He is delighted to have the opportunity to serve the citizens and businesses of Macomb County.
Miller started his career off as a sole proprietor attorney. In May of 2010, he became an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Macomb County, working in both circuit and district courts. He served as the liaison to Warren and Center Line’s Drug Court and the Roseville Sobriety Court. Miller spent his last year at the Prosecutor’s Office in the Senior Crimes Unit.
In 2014, Miller ran for State Representative of the 28th district and won with overwhelming support. During his term as State Representative, Miller focused his legislative efforts on protecting society’s most vulnerable children and seniors. He served on the House Insurance Committee where he introduced legislation in an attempt to bring transparency to Michigan’s Catastrophic Claims Fund. He fought in a bipartisan manner to keep Michigan’s auto no-fault system in place. Miller also served on the House Energy Committee where he sponsored legislation to promote renovations to old neighborhoods that would increase property values across the State. Treasurer Miller is most proud of standing up against the corporate subsidization of energy costs on the backs of residential rate payers.
Derek was born and raised in Warren and is proud to still call the city he loves home with his wife, Katie, and their daughter, Dakota Faye. Derek and Katie both graduated from Cousino High School and were married in December of 2014. Now, Miller is filling what he sees as his obligation to serve Macomb County as his family has for more than 60 years. His grandfather, Arthur J. Miller, was elected the first Mayor of Warren in 1957. His grandmother, Edna Miller, was the first female elected Macomb County Clerk. His father, Arthur J. Miller Jr., served in the Michigan Senate from 1977-2003. Derek E. Miller is honored to continue serving the families, seniors and businesses of Macomb County.
