Candidates for Md. lieutenant governor emphasize their immigrant pasts

October 28, 2022

One candidate fled Yugoslavia as bombs fell, only to rally against what she sees as echoes of the communist state in her backyard. The other left a “lovely life” as a child in India for more opportunity in America — and found it. Maryland lieutenant governor candidates Aruna Miller, a Democrat, and Gordana Schifanelli, a Republican, are both immigrants. Both are mothers — Miller, 57, has three daughters and Schifanelli, 51, has three sons — and both would be the first immigrant to hold the office.
