Former State Rep. Borris Miles Opens Campaign Office

Get ready for a rematch of  the 2006 and 2008 Democratic Party primary in state house district #146.

Former State Representative Borris Miles  opened a new campaign office on Saturday, and he has already hit the  ground running.   Miles spent the day block walking with volunteers and reaching out to voters in the diverse district.

Miles told 2 on the Beat that he has won the support of elected leaders like Houston city council member Jolanda Jones and HISD Trustee Larry Marshall, and precinct judges like Mrs. Jenkins.

Miles served one-2 year term in the Texas State Legislature after defeating long time incumbent Al Edwards in the 2006 primary.

But in 2008, Miles’ political career took a nosedive when he was charged with two counts of deadly conduct for allegedly pointing a gun at someone during a Christmas Party. A jury declared him not guilty, but by then, Miles had lost the primary to Edwards.

As he campaigns, Miles is reminding voters that he is an innocent man, and that during his brief tenure as a state representative he authored, joint-authored or amended twenty-five pieces of legislation.

Miles says he wants to return to Austin and get back to work for the people of his district.
