Andy Miller Benton County Prosecutor

KENNEWICK, Wash. — The Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller just became the longest tenured county employee, with 39 years and 257 days.

Miller also happens to be the longest tenured prosecutor in the state of Washington.

On Feb. 21 the prosecuting office honored Miller, bringing in past and present coworkers to say a few words.

Commissioner Jim Beaver also presented him with a plaque recognizing the milestone.

“The reason I’ve been in this job for so long is I love it so much, I think it’s important work, I like working for the people of Benton County, but the thing that’s made it great is the people I’ve worked with, and it was nice to see so many people today,” Miller said.

One of those people, Judge Carrie Runge, spoke kindly about Miller, having known him for roughly 33 years.

Miller says he is grateful to the people of Benton County for re-electing him throughout the years.
