Haven N. Shoemaker, Jr. is a Republican member of the Maryland House of Delegates, representing District 5. He was first elected to the chamber in 2014.


Campaign themes


Shoemaker's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • We need tax relief in Maryland. Over 40 different taxes and fees have been raised in the last 7 years. We are at a severe competitive disadvantage with other states and we are losing people and businesses across the state line every day. This must change, and I want to lead that effort.
  • We need to stop the gun-grabbers. The Second Amendment is clear. I will fight for gun rights.
  • Pension income should not be subject to state taxation.
  • Since I am pro-life, I don’t believe in taxpayer funded abortions.[1][2]
