Maryland Lt. Gov.-elect Aruna Miller brings expansive vision of the job

January 16, 2023

Aruna Miller at first resisted elective office when a resignation opened a seat in the Maryland state legislature. She worried. “Nobody looks like me that’s elected,” Miller, now 58, recalled in an interview. “No one’s going to vote for me.” Then she thought of what good she could do, she said. So was launched a journey Miller describes as improbable and will culminate next week with her swearing in alongside Maryland Gov.-elect Wes Moore as part of a history-making ticket. Miller’s new post, lieutenant governor, has long been relegated to the tedium of diplomacy: attending ribbon cuttings, filling in at events the boss can’t make. But Miller — and Moore — see the job differently.
