Beebe names Martha Miller to head Arkansas Heritage Dept.

MARTHA MILLER: New Heritage leader.
  • MARTHA MILLER: New Heritage leader.
From the governor's office:

Governor Mike Beebe has named Martha Miller of Little Rock as the new director of the Arkansas Department of Heritage. Miller replaces Cathie Matthews, who retired at the end of 2012 after 15 years of leading the agency.

"Martha is a life-long Arkansan who has strong experience within the department and with state government," Beebe said. "Promoting her from her position as deputy director was an easy and sensible decision in light of Cathie Matthews' retirement."

Miller, 60, previously served as Deputy Director for the Department of Arkansas Heritage Museums. Formerly a self-employed attorney and lobbyist, she has served on the boards of Lyon College (her alma mater), the Little Rock Interfaith Hospitality Network and Audubon Arkansas.

Miller went to work in the Heritage Department's museum division about a year ago (and not long after riled the NAACP with a change at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center.) She has a long political history. Her father, John Miller, was a long-time leader of the state House of Representatives. She once was married to Morril Harriman, Beebe's chief of staff.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
