Two Weeks, Two Endorsements
Meet the Committee to Elect Jacqueline Gray Miller.
While several people are missing from this squad photo, these are the people that make it all happen. Over the past two weeks, we celebrated two endorsements.
The Citizens for Better Government
The first endorsement came from The Citizens for Better Government. Founder, John Rogers and Co-Founder Varrie Johnson made the announcement live on Facebook.
“The other is District 54,” Rogers said. “We went with Jacqueline [Gray] Miller. She showed us a game plan how she could win. She showed us the plan she put together and it looked very good. We feel like Jacqueline [Gray] Miller has the teamwork to be successful in this race.”
Watch the full announcement at the 40 minute mark from Ervi Philemon Hill, president of The Citizens for Better Government. Their mission is to see the best people and processes at work in governments.
Conservation Alabama Action Fund
The following week, the Conservation Alabama Action Fund offer their endorsement.
"When we evaluate candidates for endorsement, we're looking for people who prioritize public lands, clean water, and increased access to renewable energy," said Tammy Monistere Herrington, Executive Director of Conservation Alabama Action Fund. "Our endorsed candidates will serve as champions for the Forever Wild Land Trust, and will work to make sure our communities and our natural resources are protected."
Conservation Alabama Action Fund is a non-partisan organization working to protect the people and places you love in Alabama. They focus on sharing information with elected officials and voters about conservation issues, and helping elect legislators who share our members’ conservation values.

I was delighted to receive both endorsements, and was especially pleased to learn both organizations weighed my community commitment. As a servant leader, I'm dedicated to enriching the lives of my neighbors, giving a voice to those that have been silenced, and ultimately creating a more just and caring Alabama.
Seeking to create a just and civil society, I’m an active member of the HIV Prevention Community Advisory Board at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I co-led a women’s resource group for the world's largest conservation organization, The Nature Conservancy.
I have served on the Junior Boards of the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation and Childcare Resources. Volunteered through Children's Hospital of Birmingham, Junior Achievement, the City of Birmingham Department of Youth Services, Salvation Army, Southside Ball Association, The Jefferson County Family Court Adolescent Mentoring Program, and the United Way of Central Alabama.
Now I want to serve you.
As your State Representative, I will create and actively support legislation that will improve the quality of lives for residents in the areas of education, job opportunities, and healthcare. I will fight for cleaner, safer, and healthier neighborhoods.
But I can’t do it alone. I’m asking for your support and your vote for me, Jacqueline Gray Miller, House District 54 on Tuesday, June 5, 2018. Thank you.
