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.

After being admitted to the Maryland Bar, I worked as a legislative lawyer for the House Judiciary committee, as an advisor to Gov. Ehrlich in Annapolis and as the Legislative Director for a Republican congressman from North Carolina.

My loving wife Rebecca and I married in 2005. We reside in St. Michaels and are the proud parents of two wonderful children, Johnny, aged 6, and Evelyn, 3. The final member of our family is our trusted yellow Labrador retriever, Roxy.

I am the son of Easton dentist Dr. John Mautz and community leader Diana Mautz. My brother is Dan Mautz, a volunteer firefighter and Red Cross emergency responder.

While I currently I operate my family’s restaurant, Carpenter Street Saloon, in St. Michaels, I was recently elected to the Maryland House of Delegates for District 37B.  The District includes all of Talbot County and portions of Caroline, Dorchester and Wicomico Counties.  It has been an incredible honor to serve in the House of Delegates and to work to help our community.


for some fun on Sunday August 30 when Harrison Street turns into a race track for some of the area’s well known men.  These good natured guys are going to be looking “uptown” as they put on a pair of ladies high heels and race through “downtown” Easton!  It is all in good fun and being done to raise monies for the Friends of Hospice as a precursor event for the Festival of Trees event held annually in November. 

Support your favorite runner by clicking on the name or team. Choose a donation amount. You can support as many runners as you like, no limits.

Come down on Race Day for all of the festivities. More information to come soon!

The runners will be strutting their stuff before the race. You can continue to add to their coffers until the time of the race. Remember, ALL proceeds benefit The Talbot Hospice Foundation! Be there early as it promises to be a packed event. Can't be at the race?  Donate to your favorite dragger now.
