Candidates to run for State Rep grows

The number of candidates to replace Matt Lori as 59th District State Representative has grown to three, as a Sturgis-area resident announced his candidacy Tuesday.

Republican Aaron Miller, 26, will join Three Rivers-area residents Roger Rathburn and John Bippus, as they vie to replace term-limited Matt Lori.

Miller, a Sturgis High School alumnus, earned a BA in political science from Western Michigan University and is due to receive a master’s of education in school administration degree in May.

He is a math teacher at Northridge High School in Middlebury, Ind.

Miller was an executive board member of College Republicans of Western Michigan University, where he assisted local candidates in their campaigns.

Miller lives in Sherman Township with his wife, Alex, who is a nurse in Sturgis. The two also raise Jersey steers.
