EAS­TON — Repub­li­can in­cum­bents swept the District 37B Mary­land House of Del­e­gates race with Del. Johnny Mautz, R-37B-Tal­bot, and Del. Christo­pher Adams, R-37B-Wi­comico, win­ning re-elec­tion Tues­day, Nov. 6.

Two of the three candidates in the District 37B race would be elected. Mautz gar­nered 23,858 votes, with Adams re­ceiv­ing 18,585 votes. Demo­cratic chal­lenger Dan O’Hare fin­ished in third with 11,913 votes.

Mautz, who first was elected in 2014, is a na­tive of St. Michaels and grad­u­ated the Ohio North­ern Univer­sity law pro­gram in 1997. Af­ter ad­mis­sion to the Mary­land Bar As­so­ci­a­tion, Mautz worked as a leg­isla­tive lawyer for the House Ju­di­ciary com­mit­tee as an ad­vi­sor to then-Gov. Bob Ehrlich. Mautz also is the man­ager of his fam­ily’s res­tau­rant Car­pen­ter Street Sa­loon in St. Michaels.

“I’m elated, humbled and hon­ored to be re-elected,” Mautz said. “We have done so much over the last four years, and I’m look­ing for­ward to do more for the Eastern Shore.

“I’m deeply grate­ful for the sup­port over the last four years. We have a bright fu­ture with Gov. Larry Hogan re­turn­ing. With him and the Eastern Shore Del­e­ga­tion on your side, we will con­tinue to work hard for the Shore.”

Adams is a fifth­gen­er­a­tion Eastern Shore na­tive and the father of three. Dur­ing his time as del­e­gate, Adams has served on the eco­nomic mat­ters com­mit­tee. He first was elected in 2014. Adams is the owner of sev­eral busi­nesses, in­clud­ing a re­tail floor cov­er­ing busi­ness, Value Car­pet One Floor & Home and com­mer­cial real es­tate prop­er­ties in Mary­land.

“I’m very happy and, most im­por­tantly, happy see­ing Gov. Hogan re-elected,” Adams said. “I’m very ex­cited for the prospects for the Eastern Shore and will con­tinue to sup­port Gov. Hogan’s ini­tia­tives.”

“We have a great team with Sen. Ad­die Eckardt and Del. Johnny Mautz work­ing for you on the Eastern Shore,” he said. “This is a thrilling and hum­bling ex­pe­ri­ence for me. Thank you to all the vot­ers.”
