The Michigan Boating Industries Association honored U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (R-Mich.) with the Ray L. Underwood Lifetime Achievement Award for her advocacy of Michigan’s waterways and marine industry.

Miller is the second recipient of the honor. She has been in public service for 37 years and is in the final year of her seventh term in the House of Representatives from Michigan’s 10th Congressional District.

Before she was elected to Congress, Miller was Michigan’s secretary of state, Macomb County treasurer and a Harrison Township supervisor. Miller is a lifelong boater who started working as a young girl at her parents’ marina in Harrison Township.

She is running for Macomb County public works commissioner.

“Congresswoman Miller has been crucial in developing and pushing legislation protecting the boating industry in Michigan and across the country,” MBIA executive director Nicki Polan said in a statement. “She’s a great advocate for water quality, boating and MBIA. She is more than deserving of this esteemed honor.”
