A challenger is jumping into the race for a spot on the Canyon City Commission.
Justin Miller, 26, confirmed to the Amarillo Pioneer on Monday that he will be a candidate for the Canyon City Commission in the upcoming May 2019 election. Miller is an independent contractor and entrepreneur in the Canyon area.
Miller says he decided to jump into the race on his hope that he can “clean up” Canyon. Miller also says he wants to focus on curtailing drunk driving in the city.
“I am running for commissioner to better my city and communities around me and to advance the clean up and beautification of our communities,” Miller said.
Miller is a political newcomer, making his first bid for office in Canyon. The newly minted candidate says he plans to run for the City Commissioner, Place 2 spot, which is currently held by police officer Cody Jones. Jones was elected to the Commission in 2017, defeating incumbent Joe Shehan.
All five seats on the Canyon City Commission will be up for re-election in May. Filing for the offices begins on Wednesday.
