Tallahassee City Commissioner Nancy Miller and GOP State Senate Candidate Nancy Miller were confused for one another in a recent Gulf County Republican Party flyer. The flyer includes a photo of Commissioner Miller, but misrepresents her as the GOP candidate. Senate Candidate Miller’s Spokesman Doug Guetzloe says the campaign has asked for the advertisement to be changed, but says they’re not especially concerned about the confusion.

A North Florida state Senate candidate is pushing back against what she calls a “witch hunt” for all things confederate. In the wake of last year’s racially targeted killings of parishioners at black church in South Carolina, several states and local municipalities worked to bring down confederate emblems.

The City’s leaders want to leave the lights on. Tallahassee City Commissioner Nancy Miller says the Long Range Planning committee she heads is looking into a plan that would replace the present lights in the chain of parks downtown with more efficient LED lights. The goal is to keep those lights on year-round rather than just during the holiday season.

Fireworks erupted in the Tallahassee commission chambers Wednesday as commissioners considered a request to help fund the city’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks display.

The Tallahassee City Commission has voted to increase electric rates for businesses. Officials say the cost to provide electricity to the city’s businesses is not covered by the utility payments businesses make. Some business owners asked the city to consider reducing operating expenses instead of a rate hike, but Commissioner Nancy Miller says the utility is already keeping costs as low as it can.

The question of where to build sidewalks is polarizing neighborhoods across the city of Tallahassee. In order to address concerns about where the paths will go officials have created rubric to identify which projects should be prioritized.

In 2010 the city made a list of priority sidewalk projects. But since then officials have decided it’s time to reevaluate. City Engineer Steve Shafer told the Tallahassee City Commission Wednesday his department is proposing a plan that would award project funding based on four criteria.

Tallahassee City Commissioner Nancy Miller has been elected for a second term. Miller took about 69 percent of the vote in her race against third-time local candidate Steve Stewart.

While celebrating with supporters at Andrew’s Downtown restaurant Tuesday evening, Miller reflected on what she learned during her reelection campaign.

This month’s Leon County election may be a primary, but several races on the ballot will be decided without going on to the general election in November. Voters of any political affiliation can choose the winners of four seats on Aug. 26.

In one universal contest, voters will get to determine who represents Florida House District 9: incumbent Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D-Tallahassee) or challenger Arnitta Grice-Walker. Although both are Democrats, all registered voters who live in the district can choose the winner because they are the only qualified candidates.

Candidates for the Tallahassee City Commission Seat Three race discuss the issues.  Incumbent Nancy Miller and challenger Steve Stewart talk about public safety, community redevelopment and how proceeds from the city’s electric utility are used.

The newly renovated stretch of Capital Circle Southwest is now open. The City of Tallahassee and Leon County held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday to highlight the road’s grand reopening.

Officials say the road rebuilding project finished six months ahead of schedule, and attribute the success to a group effort between federal, state, and local governments.  Tallahassee City Commissioner Nancy Miller said the project has helped revitalized the region’s economy.

The Capital City’s beltway is getting a facelift starting Monday.  Tallahassee and Leon County officials are expanding the road to be nearly as wide as a football field.

The existing two lane rural portion of Capital Circle Northwest and Southwest will be expanded into a six lane, 230 wide foot, highway. Officials are planning landscaping projects to create more space for pedestrians and bicycle traffic.  City of Tallahassee Commissioner Nancy Miller said the move will give Tallahassee a new gateway from the airport.

Tallahassee’s property tax rate won’t be going up next year. On Tuesday, City Commissioners voted to keep the millage rate the same. But that means they’ll have to find other ways to cut nearly $1 million from the 2013 budget in order to cover an unexpected shortfall.

The city of Tallahassee announced the “Get There Green” program  on Thursday. The program starts with three parts, all aimed at encouraging eco-friendly transportation use among city employees.

First, the city has purchased an electric vehicle—it looks like a golfcart—that employees can use to shuttle between City Hall and other government buildings downtown.

In front of City Hall on Thursday, City Commissioner Nancy Miller drove the two-person, door-less vehicle. “I have a convertible, so it doesn’t bother me a bit," she said.  "And it’s very comfortable.”
