An ‘accidental politician,’ Aruna Miller prepares to become Maryland’s next lieutenant governor

December 14, 2022

The way Aruna Miller sees it, she’s an “accidental politician.” And even when she launched a political career, she never imagined she’d climb to one of the highest offices in Maryland’s state government. But on Jan. 18, she’ll become the second-ranking official in Maryland, the third woman and the first woman of color to raise her hand and be sworn in as lieutenant governor of Maryland alongside the next governor, Wes Moore. “I cannot tell you what a profound moment it’s going to be,” Miller said in an interview with The Baltimore Banner. “I can’t even comprehend it.” Moore hopes that when Miller takes the oath of office, it launches her into a new level of public service.
