LUDINGTON — Jordan Miller of Ludington has announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Mason County prosecutor. Miller is currently the chief assistant prosecutor for the Manistee County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to serve,” said Miller. “I have been an attorney for 10 years now, including the last five as a prosecutor, and I can say without hesitation that these last five years have been the most rewarding of my career.  Every day I am inspired by our men and women in law enforcement and by the victims who find the strength to tell their stories. I want to continue doing my part to help.”

As chief assistant prosecuting attorney for Manistee County, Miller’s casework includes handling misdemeanor and felony cases involving property crimes, drug offenses, assault, domestic violence, weapons offenses, and sexual assault crimes among others.

Miller has lived in Mason County since 2016. He previously practiced in Ludington in private practice and is past-president of the Mason-Lake Bar Association, serving from 2017 to 2019. He graduated first in his class from Valparaiso University Law School in 2013 and has also worked for the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Miller said if elected, his focus will be on ensuring accountability in an ever-changing landscape while also respecting the rights of the accused.

“We’ve seen a lot of changes in Michigan the last few years,” he said, “not only in terms of the fentanyl crisis, but also because of criminal justice reforms. It has made the work of prosecutors more difficult, but I am confident in my ability to navigate those waters. My goal will be to enforce the law fairly, but also strictly, to ensure that Mason County continues to be a safe place to live. I want my results to speak for themselves.”

Miller currently serves on the City of Ludington Planning Commission.

He also has volunteered at various Mason County events, has been a presenter at local schools for Constitution Day, and was previously involved in the Ludington Rotary Club.

Miller is the first candidate to announce he is running for the prosecutor’s position.

Current Mason County Prosecutor Lauren Kreinbrink, also a Republican, has not confirmed that she is seeking re-election. MCP has attempted several times to contact her in the past three weeks but has not received a response. The deadline for filing a petition for the Aug. 6 primary election is 4 p.m. on April 23.

If there is more than one candidate running for either the Republican or Democratic party, the nominee from each party will be decided during the Aug. 6 primary with the final candidate chosen during the Nov. 5 General Election.
