Council Member Miller worked in the construction industry for 42 years – first as an electrician and then 12 years as an Inspector and Construction Manager for the County of Sacramento. Steve started his own construction consulting business in 2000.  He joined KMM Services in 2010, an electrical and technology engineering firm located in Carmichael.
