Porter County Recorder Jon C. Miller has announced that he will run as a Republican candidate for Clerk of the Circuit Courts.

“I have enjoyed serving the public within our county government system and hope to continue that service,” Miller said in a statement released on Thursday.

Miller has 35 years of public service experience in Porter County, most recently as the two-term County Recorder. He has also served with the Porter County Sheriff’s Department and the Porter County Communications 911 Department as computer network administrator.

While serving as Recorder, Miller said, he has implemented several advancements within the office:

* Upgrading the recording software to meet 21st century needs.

* eRecording, which allows for electronic, paperless recording.

* An office website and Facebook page, allowing for easier access to recording services.

* Swift, a process that returns recorded documents electronically, eliminating the need to mail back documents.

* A Veteran’s Honor Rewards community-based discount card program.

* Serving as a “public watchdog” against property fraud and document scams.

“Miller was elected to the executive board of the Indiana Recorders Association, serving two years as secretary and last year as president,” the statement said. “While president, he helped guide the legislative passage of Senate Bill 505, which eliminated the confusing recording fee structure by creating predictable recording fees, while also setting legal standards for electronic recording in Indiana. In 2017, Miller was honored with the Outstanding Service award from the Indiana Recorders Association, along with being presented the Recorder of the Year award from the Association of Indiana Counties.”

“I consider it a blessing to have served in Porter County these many years,” Miller said. “It has been an experience that I find gratifying. I believe in using technology and good old fashioned quality service to enhance all facets of what the county clerk can offer. I embrace the opportunity to serve all who interact with this office.”

Miller, 60, has been married to his wife Joyce for 25 years. They have two children, Brian and Katelyn.
