Del. Jackson Miller is Republican nominee for Clerk of Court; special election is April 18

Del. Jackson Miller is the Republican nominee for the April 18 Special Election for Clerk of Court of Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. The vacancy has occurred due to the death of Clerk of Court, and long-time Prince William public servant, Michele McQuigg, who died on February 15, 2017.

Dottie Miller, chairman of the Prince William Republican Committee, made the announcement at the committee’s March 4 Lincoln-Reagan dinner at Heritage Hunt in Gainesville.

“Prince William County and Manasses have lost a committed public servant in Michele McQuigg,” Miller was quoted as saying in a press release. “We are devastated about her sudden passing and our prayers are with the loved-ones that she leaves behind. But I can’t think of a better person to follow her service as Clerk of Court than Jackson Miller. Jackson has lived a life of service in the military, law enforcement and General Assembly. His humble pursuit of this office shows that he cares about service, not the accumulation of more power.”

“I’m honored to be the nominee for Clerk of Court for Prince William and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park,” Jackson Miller was quoted as saying in the press release. “I intend to use my experience in the Army Reserve, law enforcement and state government to ensure the Court is responsive to the needs of the people.”

Jackson Miller was elected to the House of Delegates in November 2006, representing Virginia’s 50th district which includes the City of Manassas and part of Prince William County. He has served in House GOP leadership as the Majority Whip since 2012. Jackson served as a Captain in the United States Army Reserve, before going on to a career in law enforcement as a police officer in both Arlington and Prince William Counties.  Miller was also a member of the Manassas City Council from 2004-2006.

Miller is a lifelong resident of Northern Virginia.  He is a proud husband of wife Suzanne and father to sons, Jackson, Jr. and Nathaniel.  He is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning.

On Feb. 28, the 31st Judicial Circuit Court of Virginia issued a Writ of Election for a special election on April 18, 2017 to fill the Clerk of Court vacancy. Virginia Code Section 24.2-510(5) requires political parties to make and complete their nominations within five days of a Court’s Writ of Election, or 60 days before the election.

To accommodate this five-day timeline, the chairmen of the Prince William County Republican Committee, City of Manassas Republican Committee, and Manassas Park Republican Committee chose a March 4 Party Canvass election to nominate the Republican candidate for Clerk of Court. Del. Jackson Miller was the only candidate to file for the nomination, therefore, he became the nominee by acclimation, and the Party Canvass was cancelled, the press release stated.
