Brian Milligam

Volusia County resident since 1999

I have lived a life of public service, first joining the Air Force National Guard in 1995 thru 1999. I have been in Law Enforcement in the Volusia county area from 1999 to the Present (Currently part time). I have also had several service based businesses in Volusia County since 2001 and am currently now of the owners of Air One Heating and Cooling Inc., based out of Ormond Beach. I have earned a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from Keiser College and hold many professional certifications throughout my many years in Law Enforcement. I am happily married with three great children, who are in a variety of different after school activities. I have had the honor and privilege of coaching my children in Youth Basketball with the YMCA (1yr), Youth Football with Popwarner (3yrs) and Lacrosse with the Catholic Youth Sports League (1yr) and Volusia County Lacrosse (1yr). I played Football and Lacrosse in high school and love both sports for both there mental and physical discipline. Education and quality of life comes first in my book, I believe that a focus on education and being a good person at home, in public and on the field are essential traits to being a better athlete. I truly enjoy watching our children learn and grow together in the name of sportsmanship, teamwork and friendship. I am excited for our new venture with Volusia Flagler Lacrosse (VFL) and look forward to growing this awesome sport for our community, see you on the field.
