“President Miller is a Maryland legend whose dedicated service, bipartisan collaboration, and strong leadership have guided our state for decades," said Baltimore County elementary school teacher and MSEA President Cheryl Bost. "While we’re grateful that he will continue to serve in the Senate, Annapolis simply won’t be the same without Mike Miller sharing and shaping history from the Senate rostrum.

“Educators will always appreciate President Miller’s passionate dedication to fight for the funding and policies that our public schools and students need, and he is passing the torch to another champion for our schools in Senator Ferguson. A former teacher, Senator Ferguson has been one of the strongest voices in Annapolis advocating for an adequate, equitable, and sustainable funding formula so that we can expand career technical education, hire more educators, and more equitably fund schools.

“We look forward to building on President Miller’s incredible legacy during the 2020 General Assembly session and working with him, Senator Ferguson, and the rest of the Senate to update the school funding formula so that every student in every neighborhood has a great public school.”
