Cardin Statement on the Passing of Mike Miller

BALTIMORE – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Maryland’s senior senator and former Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates, released the following statement on the passing of Maryland Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr.

“It will take time for me to process that we have really lost Mike Miller. He was a Maryland institution, as the longest serving Senate president in our state’s history. But even more, he was a cherished friend. Our lives were intertwined, starting with our days together at the University of Maryland Law School and then serving together in the Maryland General Assembly. Myrna and I were privileged to have him in our lives for all these years. He was larger than life, a good friend, a good man who loved his family and community and an incredible public servant who dedicated himself to his beloved Maryland. Our hearts ache for Patti and his family at this immensely difficult time. May his memory be a blessing.”
