Disappointed in Miller's forum response

At the League of Women Voters forum, Joel Miller showed his true colors.

When a question was posed about human trafficking, Miller suggested that we all “take a look in the kitchen” the next time we go out to eat. Miller’s comments reveal his belief that those in the food service industry are undocumented, and that food service workers are victims of trafficking. Underlying these issues is revealed an association for Joel Miller between food industry employees and ethnicity — if the individuals behind the kitchen wall of Joel Miller’s implicit bias were Caucasian, would he make this statement at all?

Miller also stated that he doesn’t believe the position of Linn County Supervisor is a full-time job. How much time does he intend to devote to this seat if elected?
