Charlie Miller, I dare you to show up at community meetings and press conferences about development in Southwest Louisville. Rep. Charlie Miller, I dare you to offer support to struggling schools in your legislative district. Rep. Charlie Miller, I dare you to pick up your telephone to encourage those in real estate to further invest in our area. Rep.

Rep. Charlie Miller, you aren’t aware of many things in our community. One thing you ARE apparently aware of is your failed record. Why else would you bank $33,019.95 for re-election a year out? Rep. Charlie Miller, you are asleep at the wheel of South Louisville, and the unions that have bought you, the teachers you pay to wear your shirts, or the cheerleaders you pay to paint faces won’t be enough to make-up for your record, or lack thereof!
