Founding Partner, Political Solutions, LLC
A founding partner of Political Solutions, Sacramento native Tami Miller brings a strong understanding of the business world to lobbying. Having worked in lobbying and legislative advocacy all of her professional life, Ms. Miller knows that it is crucial to be educated and vigilant about her clients’ issues and proactive in advancing their agenda, while also keeping them well-informed about California’s ever-changing legislative and political environment.
Ms. Miller’s extensive experience in the business sector enables her to effectively humanize complex legislative issues, and as a result, achieve critical policy and regulatory goals important to industry. Before launching Political Solutions, Ms. Miller worked as a legislative advocate for over a decade, lobbying on behalf of the tourism industry, agricultural interests, and land development.

Ms. Miller was also responsible for hiring and directly working with the association’s contract lobbyist, giving her valuable perspective and high standards as to what Political Solutions’ clients should expect and deserve from their legislative advocate.
Ms. Miller’s career in California politics began more than twenty years ago, when she joined the law firm of Biddle and Hamilton as a lobbyist. Her areas of expertise include land use, tourism, insurance and utilities, and she is continuously building upon her vast network within the lobbying community and legislative arena.
