In November, Maryland voters will elect a new chief financial officer, the state comptroller.

State Delegate Brooke Lierman is the Democratic nominee. To her, it’s an opportunity to build a more transparent and financially resilient state. Another priority: ensuring Maryland has the revenue to fund the muti-billion dollar Blueprint for Education.

Lierman hopes to use the comptroller’s statewide bully pulpit to address the burden of student loans and the economic consequences of gun violence.
