After Brooke Lierman raises her right hand and recites the oath of office as comptroller Monday, she doesn’t know what she’ll do immediately afterward. “I [don’t] know exactly what I will do, what will happen, or what it will feel like,” she said during an interview Friday. “I have to imagine it will feel overwhelming, joyous and slightly terrifying all at the same time. It’s an awesome responsibility that Marylanders are giving to me, and I don’t take that lightly.” The Democrat from Baltimore, who served in the House of Delegates for eight years, will be the state’s first woman elected to the position and to an independent state government office.
