Ruth Miles
Small Business Advocate, Office of the Secretary of State

Ruth Miles works collaboratively with small businesses, nonprofits, state and local government.

With 18 years of experience running small businesses to add to her nine years of service in the Legislative branch, Ruth Miles understands first-hand the challenges entrepreneurs face.  She’s crisscrossed Oregon over the last 3 ½ years to visit with business leaders and associations, chamber of commerce and community partners to hear their concerns about getting caught in red tape.  And everywhere she goes, she runs with scissors.
