There is something about being a public servant in the state of Iowa. There is a pretty good chance that you'll be at it for quite a while! You might even end up in the record books.

First, it was Governor Terry Branstad. Back in 2015, he became the nation's longest-serving governor. Then, last year, it was current 10 term state treasurer Michael Fitzgerald who became the longest-serving state treasurer. Now, this year, on November 11th, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller will become the longest-serving attorney general in U.S. history.

The 75-year-old Miller says that it certainly doesn't feel like its been 37 years. He says that he is both happy and proud to be the longest-serving attorney general in the United States. He says that the job is great because he gets to use the law to serve the interests of ordinary Iowans.

Miller's list of accomplishments is lengthy, but he prides himself on the work of consumer protection for Iowans. He said that is something that affects us all.
