Adam Miller is one of three candidates running for two seats on the Grandview Heights Board of Education.

Miller will face off against Debbie Brannan and Thomas Hayes in the Nov. 8 election. He ran previously for the school board in 2007.

Incumbents Kathy Lithgow and Joanne Peters both decided not to run for reelection.

Miller said his 17 years practicing school law has provided him with a wealth of experience dealing with the kind of issues the school board faces.

He said his main concern is the need for the school board to do what it can to fight the idea of consolidating school districts. This is a real danger, he said, given that Gov. John Kasich has asked the legislature to create a commission to explore school consolidation.

"I'm opposed to this idea in any form," Miller said.

Grandview is a unique district that consistently earns excellent ratings on the state report card, he said, and it must remain an independent district to help maintain that standard of excellence.
