The Builders Association of Elkhart County is endorsing Doug Miller in the race for the District 48 seat in the Indiana House.
Miller, past president of the association and 2011 head of the Indiana Builders Association, "has been a tireless advocate for the housing industry locally and statewide," Kim McKibbin, executive officer of the local association, said in a statement
McKibbin went on: "As a small business owner, Doug understands the importance of creating jobs that will bring families and revenue to this community. Doug also recognizes the responsibility that the building community has in creating and improving quality of life in Elkhart County."
Miller, a Republican, runs a home construction business, D.L. Miller Construction, in Elkhart. He's running for the seat to be vacated by Rep. Tim Neese, also a GOPer, that covers northwestern Elkhart County, including northern Elkhart.
Two other Republicans, Jesse Bohannon and Adam Bujalski, are also running for the spot.
