Woodstock — A former educator and bookseller who has been active in civic life in Woodstock plans to run for the Vermont House seat long held by state Rep. Alison Clarkson, D-Woodstock.

Ron Miller, 60, said this week he has filed petitions to run as a Democrat for the House seat representing Woodstock, Plymouth and Reading.

“Although I love the work I’m doing in the community, this is an opportunity to help find solutions to some of the challenges facing Vermont,” Miller said in a news release. “Too many people are struggling to meet basic needs such as housing, health care, nutritious food and education. And we need to continue working on long-term responses to climate change and other environmental issues.”

Miller, who has lived in Vermont since 1992, taught history and education at Goddard and Champlain colleges and was the founder and board president of the Bellwether School in Williston, Vt.

He owned Shiretown Books in Woodstock from 2011 to 2014, and has served on the board of Sustainable Woodstock and on the planning team for the Bookstock Literary Festival, among other activities.

Clarkson, who took office in 2005, is running for a Vermont Senate seat from Windsor County.
