Miller resigns as downtown association head

After four months at the helm of the Tahoe City Downtown Association, Ed Miller has stepped down, saying the association needs a full-time executive director.

Miller, a 30-year Tahoe resident and co-owner of Wild West Communications, was the first director of the organization. He will continue as the emcee of the Commons Beach concerts and will continue volunteering and consulting with the association.

“The TCDA, although only a little over one year old, has taken on great responsibilities in the community,” said Miller in a statement to the association’s board. “I have found that the group’s prominence has led to expectations by both the community and the (county) government that put a great deal of pressure on the organization.”

Miller said that with full-time administrative staff, the association can grow and be proactive, rather than reactive.

“Ed has helped us reach the next level in our organization. We appreciate his honesty and candor in providing us direction towards our next milestone,” said Carol Hester, the group’s board president in a written statement.
