It is an honor to represent Elkhart County in the Indiana House of Representatives. I am a lifelong resident of Elkhart County, and I believe that this will be an invaluable asset as I work to be your voice in Indianapolis. This area has provided so many opportunities for me and my family, and now, it is my chance to give back.

My website is intended to keep you informed about all that I am doing at the Statehouse and also provides useful information about our district. My primary concern is, and always will be, the success of District 48, and I believe a large part of securing that success will be bringing more business, and in turn, more jobs to the area.

I truly value your feedback and believe that it is essential to the democratic process. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, comments or concerns.

Sincerely,

Doug Miller
