Clay Miller is a proud South Florida resident, a local political activist, and a lifelong progressive. He currently serves as the Communications and Legislative Aide to Broward County Commissioner Beam Furr, representing Hollywood, Hallandale Beach, and Pembroke Pines. He is also the Communications Director for the Broward Young Democrats.
Clay was born and raised in Hollywood and is a proud product of Broward County Public Schools. He attended The George Washington University in Washington D.C., where he received his B.A in Political Communication in just three years and his M.A. in Media and Strategic Communications in just one year, graduating summa cum laude. Clay returned home after graduating in order to make a needed difference for his home in Broward and South Florida.
In his role with Mayor Furr’s office, Clay manages all office communications, coordinates legislation with intergovernmental departments, prepares policy briefs, and serves as the Commissioner’s representative at many community events weekly. He enjoys the opportunity to serve the community in which he was raised and fight for economic justice, environmental resilience, criminal sentencing reform, early childhood education, and much more. Clay applies his skills in communication and team-building to organizations like the Broward Young Democrats, turning rhetoric into actionable results.
Clay is excited to see what the next generation of progressive leaders bring to the table. He is overjoyed and honored to have been selected as an NLC Fellow for the Class of 2019. This opportunity will pay dividends for years to come, and he looks forward to using the lessons of NLC to give back to his community.
