About Delegate Heather Mizeur

If elected, Heather Mizeur would be Maryland’s first woman Governor and the nation’s first openly LGBT Governor. Twice named to Maryland’s Top 100 Women list, Heather Mizeur has been called an "audacious risk-taker,” a "hero to a wide swath of Democrats,” and "one of the canniest politicians in Maryland today.”

Her fifteen years of experience in policy has made her a progressive powerhouse in Annapolis, where she expanded health care to children, protected reproductive rights for women, safeguarded the environment, and brought 21st-century jobs to Maryland.

Heather’s campaign for Governor recently made exciting news on a number of fronts. Heather selected Rev. Delman Coates, the senior pastor of an 8,000-person church, as her Lieutenant Governor running mate. She also released policy proposals to support the economy, expand pre-K and improve public education, and legalize and tax marijuana to fund education and achieve criminal justice reforms.

Responsibilities

• Political/Field– Assist with outreach to elected officials, interest groups, and community leaders. Work includes issue and political research, voter contact, targeting analysis, and event planning.
• Communications/Policy – Assist communications and policy team with issue research, social media management, managing press contacts, and more.
