Mayor

I am very thankful and honored to have been elected as Mayor of the Town of North Beach. As a young man growing up in North Beach in the '70s & 80s, I never imagined that someday I would become Mayor of our amazing town. At my Swearing In Ceremony, I mentioned that while walking to the event I started thinking of how far the town has come and the excitement of where we are going. Over the next four years, you will see me focusing on infrastructure and continuing to shine the Jewel of the Chesapeake Bay. We will continue to work on maintaining the balance between the quality of life of our residents and welcoming our visitors to our town.

Although we still own my childhood home on Frederick Avenue, my wife and I are currently raising two of our four children in our new home on Greenwood Avenue. Our oldest boy is now serving our country as a Marine and our only daughter is in medical sales and lives in Virginia. My wife and I are full-time realtors and work mainly from our home. I serve on the Maryland Municipal League Board of Directors, which allows me the opportunity to network with fellow municpale leaders around the state. 

I am always available for a conversation and will maintain an open door policy for my term as Mayor. You can reach me at 410.610.5614 or email me at mbenton@northbeachmd.org
