Law Enforcement Executive Endorses Craig Miller
Seminole County Republican Craig Miller, candidate for District 24’s U.S. Congressional Seat, today announced that he has been endorsed by Vince Champion, who is recognized as one of Central Florida’s top law enforcement professionals. Champion was a 22-year police officer with the Ormond Beach Police Department and currently serves as the President of the Coastal Florida Police Benevolent Association, which represents police officers in Brevard, Volusia, and Seminole counties.
“Having met each of the candidates running for the seat, I have come to the conclusion that you are the most qualified and most credentialed candidate running for this office,” stated Champion in an endorsement letter. “As a 22-year police officer, I personally know the detriment a poor economy can have on crime. I know it requires skilled leaders with real solutions to address our economic woes. Further, I know your business background and record of leadership during critical times is precisely what we need to fix the problems facing America today. I am proud to support your candidacy and look forward to working with you as Central Florida’s next Congressman.”
Miller responded, “Vince Champion has dedicated his life to serving others. He and his law enforcement brethren have my utmost respect in that they put their lives on the line every day in the name of justice. Vince’s endorsement means a lot to me, because he represents the embodiment of what is good and decent in the world today. Law Enforcement can count on me to fight for them as they fight so hard for us.”
When Craig was just 13 he went to work washing dishes at the Neptune Restaurant in Rockledge, Florida. He graduated from Cocoa High and served in Vietnam. He was stationed at McCoy and Patrick Air Force Bases. He met his wife Susan while working at the Colony Theater in Winter Park and then graduated from UCF. Craig led Pizzeria Uno and Ruth’s Chris Steak House – creating thousands of jobs and building hundreds of restaurants across America. Craig lives in Seminole County with his wife Susan and is the father of three grown children and one grandchild. His mother and sister still live in Brevard County.
