Support Democrat Aruna Miller, who is running for a House of Representatives seat in Maryland’s 6th District.
Miller’s family moved from India to America when she was seven. She relied on Pell Grants, student loans, and her job earnings to get her college education as a civil engineer. She has more than two decades of experience working as a transportation engineer in local governments in California, Virginia, Hawaii, and Maryland.
In 2010, she ran and won a seat in the Maryland House of Delegates from the state’s 15th District, and has held that elected position ever since. Her state-level accomplishments include pursuing bills that repealed the death penalty, established marriage equality, prevented the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, expanded background checks for gun purchases, and increasing the minimum wage.
If elected she would fight Trump’s attempts to trample on civil rights, reproductive rights, and voters’ rights. She would protect veterans’ benefits, Social Security, and Medicare. She believes health care is a right and would vote accordingly. She wants to expand STEM education and make college more affordable.
Three-term Democratic incumbent John Delaney is vacating the seat to run for president in 2020. The Cook Political Report rates Maryland’s 6th District as Solid Democrat.
Miller will face seven other Democrats in the June 26, 2018 primary. Four Republicans, a Green Party candidate, an Independent, and a Libertarian have all committed to run.
