Conference Call: Jonathan Miller

JONATHAN MILLER is the former two-term elected Kentucky State Treasurer, the author of the critically-acclaimed The Compassionate Community: Ten Values to Unite America, the founder of the bi-partisan political blog, The Recovering Politician, and a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. In his nearly two decades of public service, Miller also held several other senior positions in state and federal government, including serving in Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s Cabinet as Secretary of Finance and Administration, as Deputy Chief of Staff of the U.S. Department of Energy, as Legislative Director for Congressman Jim Cooper (D-TN), and as a longtime aide to Vice President Al Gore. Miller waded knee-deep in the political muck from an early age, founding Students for Gore for President in 1988, reviving College Democrats of America in 1989, serving as a Deputy Political Director for the Clinton/Gore 1992 presidential campaign, chairing the Kentucky Democratic Party in 2007, and running successfully twice for State Treasurer.

In April 2011, Miller left the political arena to join the private sector. He serves as Senior Adviser to Wellford Energy, a firm dedicated to helping develop and finance affordable clean energy technologies across the country and in Israel. He also practices law at the Lexington office of Frost Brown Todd.

In 2011, Miller founded The Recovering Politician, a bi-partisan Web site, featuring more than 20 former politicians who share their views on the issues of the day, informed by their service in the arena, but no longer inhibited by the pressures of incumbency. He also is the Co-Founder of No Labels, a national grassroots movement of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who understand that, on occasion, we need to put aside our labels to do what is right for the country.
