Incumbent commissioner Dan Olson withdrew from the race last week, leaving former Alexandria Police Chief Chuck Nettestad as the sole candidate. Under state law, the filing period for District 5 was extended five days, through this Tuesday.

Miller's term as council member for the Ward 3 expires in 2016.
