The Asian American Action Fund enthusiastically endorsed Maryland Deligate Aruna Miller (D) for United States Congress. Miller is running for Congress in Maryland’s Congressional District 6, in an open election, as the incumbent Rep. John Delaney will not seek reelection. Maryland’s 6th Congressional District encompasses Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties, as well as parts of Frederick and Montgomery counties
We are especially excited to endorse Aruna as she has a long track record of representing Maryland voters and continues to actively work on behalf of AAPI constituents. She was a founding member of the Asian American Caucus in the Maryland General Assembly. The Federal Asian Pacific American Council awarded her with the 2016 Outstanding Leadership award for her work in the Maryland General Assembly.
In her public and her private life, Aruna has been a public servant. She is a first generation Indian-American. Before entering into politics she served as a Transportation Engineer for Montgomery County and other local governments. In that role she worked for equitable access for the disabled, bicyclist, pedestrians, commuters, and motorist. Since 2011 she has represented District 15 in the Maryland House of Delegates where she worked to increase the minimum wage, ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, ensure that rape crisis centers are equipped with the necessary resources to help victims of sexual violence, repeal the death penalty, establish marriage equality and expand common sense background checks for gun purchases.
