After dropping by nearly $2 million in 2010, Miller’s wealth held steady last year, declining only slightly, from $17.5 million to $17.4 million.
One contributing factor to the decline was the balance in Miller’s account with the California Christian Credit Union, which fell from at least $1 million to at least $500,000.
Miller started G. Miller Development Co. while in his early 20s, which went from building single-family homes to developing planned communities. He keeps much of his wealth in land holdings, predominantly in Oregon and California.
The congressman’s most valuable asset is 382 acres of vacant land in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., worth at least $5 million. Six of his other properties are worth at least $1 million, as is his Commercial Bank account.
