Deal names Miller as executive counsel

[private]Gov. Nathan Deal has named Carey Miller as his executive counsel, effective Oct. 15.

Miller will replace David Werner, who has resigned to become the director of state and local government relations for Delta Air Lines.

“Werner has been an instrumental member of my administration since the 2010 campaign and I’m grateful for his service to our state,” Deal said. “During his tenure, Werner has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the well-being of our citizens and his efforts as executive counsel have helped to advance the interests of many Georgians.”

Miller is Deal’s deputy executive counsel and public safety policy advisor. He is a co-chairman of the Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform and a member of the State Steering Committee for the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative.

Miller has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a law degree from the University of Georgia.
