Passing of Phil Miller

The Libertarian Party of Indiana mourns the passing of Phil Miller, a longtime activist and leader in the Libertarian Party of Indiana.

Miller passed away June 2 at age 69.

Miller served on the Greenfield City Council from 2000 to 2003 as an elected Libertarian. He also ran for state legislature and mayor of Greenfield, spreading the message of liberty and garnering high vote totals in every campaign. While serving on the city council, he was a principled vote for the taxpayers of Greenfield, always sticking with principle and frequently casting a lone “no” vote to represent taxpayers.

He also served multiple stints as the chair of the Libertarian Party of Hancock County and participated on the Libertarian National Strategic Planning Team.

For many years, he was known for his one-man Tax Day protests in Greenfield. In addition to active service as a candidate and within the LPIN, he was an active member of St. James Lutheran Church and the Lions Club.

The Libertarian Party of Indiana’s Candidate of the Year award is named for Miller.

“Phil Miller was a great Libertarian and a longtime leader in our party,” LPIN chair Evan McMahon said. “He brought countless people into the Libertarian Party. He served his community and our party with great grace and class. He was a sounding board for many and the sage in our party. He continues to be an inspiration to Libertarians seeking public office. We will miss him greatly.”

Phil is survived by his wife of 46 years, Terry, as well as their three children and one grandchild.

The Libertarian Party of Indiana sends condolences to Miller’s family and friends.
