CandidateVerification
Heather Mizeur (b. December 6, 1972) is a Democratic member of the Maryland House of Delegates, representing District 20. She was first elected to the chamber in 2007.

Mizeur is a candidate for Governor of Maryland in 2014.[1] She formally announced her bid to succeed term-limited Democratic incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley on July 17, 2013. Mizeur is seeking the Democratic nomination in the primary on June 24, 2014. The general election takes place November 4, 2014. If victorious, she will be the state's first female to hold the governor's office, as well as the country's first openly gay governor.[2]

Maryland state law forbids candidates from running for more than one office in the same electoral cycle, therefore Mizeur's entry into the 2014 gubernatorial race renders her ineligible to seek re-election to the state House when her seat next comes up in 2014.[2]

Mizeur's professional experience includes working as Government Affairs Advisor of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis, Limited Liability Partnership, for Preston Gates Ellis & Rouvelas Meeds, LLP, Director of Domestic Policy to U.S. Senator John F. Kerry, and Legislative Director to U.S. Representative Joseph P. Kennedy II.
