Eastern Shore Values.
I like to think my biography is short and sweet.
I attended elementary, middle and high school in St. Michaels and Easton before graduating from Brewster Academy in 1989. I received a Bachelors degree from the University of Dayton in 1994 and a Juris Doctorate degree from Ohio Northern University in 1997.
When I was a child, my parents purchased Carpenter Street Saloon in St. Michaels. Since that time, I have worked in or around the saloon in almost every capacity – truth be told I’m not a very good cook. In addition to working in the saloon, I have also worked on a variety of construction sites and commercial clamming and crabbing boats.
I am an avid outdoorsman, and have played in various sports leagues in the area, including the 1982 Easton Little League team, which made it all the way to the Little League World Series. I am a member of several local fraternal organizations, participate in youth sports, and serve on the Board of the Neighborhood Service Center.
After being admitted to the Maryland Bar, I worked as a legislative lawyer for the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and as an advisor to Gov. Ehrlich in Annapolis.
A Dedicated Public Servant.
In 2014 I was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates and was elected again in 2018. In Annapolis, I have served on the House Economic Matters Committee and was appointed to serve as the Ranking Member earlier this year. I also serve on the Oyster Advisory Commission, the Aquaculture Advisory Council, the Broadband Advisory Workgroup, and the Transforming Manufacturing Workgroup.
My family resides in St. Michaels, and I am extremely proud of my two wonderful children, Johnny and Evelyn. The final member of our family is our trusted yellow Labrador retriever, Honey.
I am the son of former Easton dentist Dr. John Mautz and community leader Diana Mautz. My brother is Dan Mautz, a volunteer firefighter and Red Cross emergency responder.
I operate my family’s restaurant in St. Michaels while also representing Senate District 37 in the Maryland General Assembly.
