About Terence Miller
Terence Miller is lifelong Yonkers resident with almost ten years of experience in advocacy, government relations, and community development. He is a graduate of Yonkers Public Schools and is passionate about the issues effecting his city. Inspired by the historic election of President Barack Obama in 2008, Terence changed his educational track from computer science to political science, and committed himself to getting the necessary education that would allow him to go back to his community and bringing much needed change.
As a student at St. John’s University, Terence was an intern for Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. There, he worked to connect Yonkers residents to resources and information necessary to help themselves and their families in areas around housing, education, immigration, employment, and healthcare. He then went on to work in community affairs for State Senator Gustavo Rivera and focused on constituent case management - again working to identify resources for individuals and their families so that they may improve their quality of life.
Making good on his promise to pour back into his community, Terence returned to his community and began to do the work. He was elected as a District Leader in the First Ward of the 1st Council District in 2016. Terence is also a member of Community Voices Heard - Yonkers Chapter (CVH). In this capacity, Terence works with Yonkers residents to collect their concerns and uses the organization's resources to address them. With CVH, he has been advocating to have the Yonkers City Council raise the current affordable housing ordinance to 30% so that more families can live and thrive in the city of Yonkers without the burden of high rental costs.
Terence loves this city and is passionate about being someone on the Council who will fight hard for the 1st District, voicing their true concerns every step of the way. He is most proud of the values instilled in him by his Grandmother, Edith Allen, a Yonkers business owner and educator, who taught him the importance of perseverance and fighting for those most in need.
