Meet Christian Miele
A devoted family man, local attorney, and experienced state legislator, Christian Miele is running to be the next State Senator for District 34, which encompasses the Harford County communities of Bel Air, Abingdon, Joppatowne, Edgewood, Belcamp, Perryman, Aberdeen, and Havre de Grace.
With current State Senator Bob Cassilly running for Harford County Executive, District 34 needs a strong, experienced, and effective leader to fill his shoes. Christian Miele is that leader.
Elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in 2014, Christian quickly became a leading voice in Annapolis. He authored and passed the Hire Our Veterans Act, a jobs bill to help unemployed military veterans re-enter the workforce; cut taxes for Maryland small businesses; voted to repeal O'Malley's disastrous "Rain Tax"; and co-sponsored the Hometown Heroes Act, which provides well-deserved tax relief for retired first responders.
Now, Christian wants to pass an even larger tax relief package by eliminating 100% of the state income tax for Maryland retirees 65 and older. He will also fight to cap Marylandís inflation-based fuel tax and introduce a series of tough-on-crime bills to hold repeat violent offenders accountable. In addition, Christian will champion legislation to protect the rights of law enforcement officers in Maryland. He is the only candidate for State Senate in Harford County endorsed by Sheriff Jeff Gahler and the State and Local Fraternal Order of Police!
Christian Miele earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Towson University and his law degree from Emory University. While in law school, he was named editor-in-chief of the Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review, an academic journal he co-founded. Christian was admitted to the Maryland Bar in 2017 and is also admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Maryland and United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Christian is an active member of several civic and professional organizations, including the Bel Air Lions Club and Harford County Bar Association. He lives in Bel Air with his wife, Dr. Jessica M. Miele, a lifelong Harford County resident and graduate of C. Milton Wright High School. Christian and Jessica have two small children.
