Aruna Miller

Democrat State House (MD-15) - Elected 2010

Aruna Miller came to this country when she was 7 years old from Hyderabad, India. She learned English while in the public-school system, graduated high school, and attended college at what is now called Missouri University of Science and Technology. She began her career as a civil engineer in Maryland and worked for Montgomery County for over 25 years. In 2010, she was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates where she represents the 15th District and serves on the Appropriations Committee. Delegate Miller lives in the 6th Congressional District with her husband, David, her mother, Hema, and their two dogs Lucy and Scout. Aruna and David also have three adult daughters Meena, Chloe, and Sasha.

In Aruna's words:

"I'm running for Congress to help ensure that future generations will have access to the benefits I received from this country which took me in as a child. In America, I was able to get an excellent public education, go to college, have a career, meet my husband, and raise three kids of my own. I am constantly grateful for the opportunities this country has given me, and I like to think I’m a good example of what happens when government, and immigration, works. That’s why I’ve been drawn to public service my whole life. That's why I ran for state delegate, that's why I'm running for national office - to help even more people across this great country that gave so much to me."
