I saw an article the other day discussing State Senator Mike Miller retiring due to having cancer (click here.) Senator Miller served as President of our Maryland State Senate for 33 years before resigning from that position in October 2019. His tenure as President of the Maryland Senate is not only the longest of anyone having ever served in Maryland but also for that of any other State Senate president in the United States.
In the Washington Post article the following caught my eye:
Naturally this made me curious about the Miller family business. I found the following website (www.bkmiller.com) with a history section that talks about how Mike’s grandfather Blossie Kueberth Miller started his country store in 1913 in Clinton, Maryland.
The business grew and diversified with the store becoming a meats and liquor store. Here is the Facebook page for the store (click here.)
As for Mike, while his other family members continued and expanded the business retail operations, he went to law school and eventually into politics. I found another Washington Post article from 1994 that does an excellent job discussing Mike’s political background and career (click here.) Mike eventually moved from the Clinton area and currently lives in Chesapeake Beach in Calvert County.
