Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 6, 2015 - Former Savannah-Chatham Police spokesman and newspaper publisher Julian Miller announced Wednesday that he is seeking the Savannah City Council District 4 seat.

“The public overwhelmingly feels that politics get in the way of keeping our streets safe and my experiences as a city and police employee confirms that,” said Miller. “Nothing is more important to this community than public safety. I will fight for immediate, significant increases in resources to fight crime and protect this community. We certainly have other issues, but crime, by far is the most pressing.”

Miller served for five years as the Public Affairs director and spokesperson for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department before retiring from that position on Monday.

He retired as publisher of the Savannah Morning News in 2008 after a three-year assignment in which the newspaper expanded service, started non-daily newspapers in Bluffton, SC and Effingham and Bryan counties, and installed a state-of-the-art printing facility, as well as expanding Savannah Magazine.

Before that he served as President of The Augusta Chronicle when the newspaper developed Internet delivery of news, including the first real-time sports reporting on PGA golf tournaments, and expanded paid circulation to its highest level ever for Morris Publishing.

Miller left the newspaper industry to become a Realtor and developed, and continues to manage, three companies that provide business offices and group homes for the developmentally disabled.

Miller and his wife, Judy, have been married for 33 years, have two adult children and have lived in Savannah for 10 years.  He earned his bachelor’s degree from Valdosta State University while working as police/courts reporter, sports editor and then investigative reporter for the Valdosta Daily Times.
