Brooke Lierman ’01
Lierman, a civil and disability rights attorney, was sworn in as Maryland’s chief tax collector on January 16. According to the Washington Post, she is the first woman independently elected to any state office in Maryland. The Post writes: “Lierman had promised voters she would advocate for equitable tax policies, including proactively reaching out to seniors or families who are not claiming tax credits for which they qualify. She wants to upgrade the state’s taxpaying systems to make it easier for business owners, and to advocate for the state’s finances to be used in a way that makes the climate more sustainable.”
