Friends, Family Gather At Site

To Honor Friend, Former Mayor

Mayor Gary Herzig, right, Andi Miller, left and scores of family, friends, and co-workers amassed at the corner of Main St. and the James F. Lettis Highway to honor the late Richard P. Miller with the official opening of Miller Park. After a few words of thanks from Mayor Gary Herzig, Miller's widow Andi thanked the crowd. "This is a great legacy for him. He was always everywhere, so having this park here, in the middle of everything is very fitting. For him, beautifying this city was not a cause, it was a passion. I think he would be really happy with it." The park was the brain-child of Al Cleinman and Richard Miller, who both believed strongly in beautifying entrances to the city. "We all have responsibilities to invest in the world around us." said Cleinman, "I could not have done this without the members of my team. Thank you to you all." A sculpture garden planned for the park and Cleinman is already forming plans to expand it father down the highway and to beautify the other side of the road as well. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

He was always everywhere, so having this park here, in the middle of everything is very fitting. For him, beautifying this city was not a cause, it was a passion. I think he would be really happy with it.”  The idea of dedicating the park for the former mayor was proposed by Al Cleinman, proprietor of Cleinman Performance Partners, who had collaborated with Miller to beautify a park on the other side of the intersection.  “We all have responsibilities to invest in the world around us.” said Cleinman, “I could not have done this without the members of my team. Thank you to you all.” A sculpture garden is planned for the park, and Cleinman is already forming plans to expand it father down the highway and to beautify the other side of the road as well.
