On the Tuesday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Sid Miller, candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, talked with Chad Hasty about his campaign.

Miller is an 8th-generation rancher and has also served in the state legislature for 6 terms. He explained that his biggest motivation for getting into the race is so he could protect the rural heritage of Texas. He added that he is devoted to the office and is not planning on using the office as a stepping stone like some of the other candidates.

"I'm running because I want to preserve our rural heritage, our Western lifestyle, our family values, our rural work ethic that we all grew up with. The other candidates in the race, some of them have said that they're running using this office as a stepping stone to a higher office. That's not what I'm about. I want to be Ag Commissioner, and I want to make sure we have a true face of agriculture in that position and that agriculture is well represented..."

Miller said that, if elected to the office, his biggest focus would be on water issues. He said that the state needs to do a better job of managing water, and as a rancher, he would work to make sure the agriculture industry gets a say in how water is managed in the sate. Miller said that border security would also be a major focus, as there are many ranchers and farmers near the border that are in danger.
