ONEONTA – State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, today described Mayor Dick Miller as “determined, tenacious” and tireless in working on behalf of the City of Oneonta.  Here is Seward’s complete statement following the news of the mayor’s passing:

“I was shocked and saddened by Dick Miller’s sudden and untimely death.  Dick brought innovative ideas to Oneonta as college president at Hartwick College and later as mayor.  He implemented those ideas in a determined, tenacious manner working tirelessly for those he represented.  I partnered with Dick on a number of projects that have bettered our community and considered him a colleague and a friend.  My sympathies to his family and all who knew him, he will be greatly missed.”
