* From a press release…
Republican 11th Congressional District candidate Bert Miller has launched his first television commercial, designed to better acquaint voters with his background and policy initiatives. The positive ad focuses on Miller’s background as a manufacturer and job creation.
“I’m Bert Miller,” the 30 second ad begins. “I manufacture plastic lids right here in Naperville.” His business, Phoenix Closures, makes plastic lids and caps for bottles and jars. He goes on to point out that all of the raw materials his company uses are from North America.
“After experiencing what Washington has done to make it harder for businesses to create jobs, I decided to run for Congress,” Miller states in the commercial. “I may not be a slick politician, but I know a thing or two about what it takes to put Americans back to work.”
The commercial will air on cable television channels reaching homes in the 11th Congressional District. Miller is seeking the Republican nomination to run against Democratic incumbent Bill Foster in November.

Miller is running against state Rep. Darlene Senger, Ian Bayne, Craig Robbins and Chris Balkema for the right to challenge incumbent Democrat Bill Foster.
Also, there’s no relation between myself and Miller. We merely share a very common surname.
