Brooke Lierman elected as Maryland’s first woman comptroller

November 9, 2022

Baltimore Del. Brooke Lierman made history Tuesday night, becoming the first woman elected as state comptroller and to an independent state government office in Maryland. “It’s been 20 years since the one and only time Democrats nominated a woman for one of our three statewide offices and I’d like to give a shout out to that woman, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend — as well as all the women who’ve run and whose shoulders I stand on: from Eleanor Carey to Valerie Ervin to Heather Mizeur and Kelly Schulz,” Lierman said to a packed hotel ballroom in Baltimore. “We represent more than 51% of the population here in this state and tonight I’m humbled that for the first time in our state’s 200-plus year history, we have finally elected a woman to one of our top three offices.”
