Aruna Miller is first Indian American Lt Gov in Maryland

Indian-American woman Aruna Miller became the first immigrant to hold the office of Lieutenant Governor in Maryland.

Taking to her Twitter handle, Miller said that the people of Maryland chose "unity over division, expanding rights over restricting rights and hope over fear." She stated that residents of Maryland chose Wes Moore as their Governor while she secured victory in the race to become Lieutenant Governor.

In another tweet, Miller stated, "Ever since I came to this country in 1972, I've never stopped being excited for the promise of America. I will never stop fighting to make sure that promise is available to everyone. And this promise begins with a commitment to deliver a Maryland where we Leave No One Behind."

The 58-year-old Democrat leader was born in Hyderabad on November 6 in 1964. She migrated to the United States from India with her family when she was 7. Miller graduated from Missouri University of Science and Technology with a degree in civil engineering. She spent 25 years working at the local Department of Transportation in Montgomery County.
