Leaders in Maryland’s House of Delegates Announce Endorsement of Delegate Aruna Miller for Congress

ANNAPOLIS, MD Today, eleven leaders from the Maryland House of Delegates, Speaker Michael Busch, Speaker Pro Tem Adrienne Jones, Chair Emerita Sheila Hixson, Appropriations Committee Chair Maggie McIntosh, Environment and Transportation Committee Chair Kumar Barve, Ways and Means Committee Chair Anne Kaiser, Health and Government Committee Chair Shane Pendergrass, Judiciary Committee Chair Joe Vallario, Judiciary Committee Vice-Chair Kathleen Dumais, Appropriations Committee Vice-Chair Tawanna Gaines, and Women’s Caucus Chair Ariana Kelly announced their endorsement of Delegate Aruna Miller in her race for the 6th Congressional District.

“I've said it before, but I am proud to stand up again today with many of my colleagues and endorse Delegate Aruna Miller in her bid for Congress. In her time in Annapolis, Aruna has taken on some of the most difficult and sensitive issues we face,” said Speaker Busch. “She's built consensus and forged commonsense, progressive solutions.”

Delegate Maggie McIntosh, chair of the Appropriations Committee, stated, “I’ve gotten to know Aruna pretty well over the past few years and I know that there is nothing she can’t do if she puts her mind to it. She is an enthusiastic problem solver, a dedicated public servant, and an empathetic legislator. We hate to see her go, but she will be an excellent Congresswoman for the 6th District and I am proud to endorse her.

“We have a once in a generation opportunity to send an incredibly effective legislator who has a passion for advancing progress on the values we care most about to Congress,” finished Delegate Kathleen Dumais. Aruna Miller, my friend and District 15 colleague, has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to listening to her constituents and helping people solve their problems. The citizens of the 6th District would be lucky to have a Congresswoman of Aruna’s talent, commitment, and innovation representing them in Washington.”

Aruna Miller began her career as civil engineer, working for 25 years for Montgomery County. In 2010, she was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates where she represents the 15th District and serves on the Appropriations Committee. Delegate Miller lives in the 6th Congressional District with her husband, David, and their two dogs Lucy and Scout. Aruna and David also have three adult daughters Meena, Chloe, and Sasha.
