Jason Maughan

Office: Florida State Senate District 27 (Currently District 30)
Status: Challenger
Party Affiliation: Republican
City: Sanibel

As a Resident of Sanibel Island, Jason Maughan is All About the Water! He is very concerned about the freshwater releases into the Caloosahatchee River and its estuaries. This is very close to his heart and to the community where he lives, breathes, and works.

A devoted husband and involved father; Jason Maughan is voted one of Southwest Florida’s best lawyers and civic activists. His law firm specializes in real estate, corporate law, construction and commercial litigation.

Crediting his success to the many opportunities provided by the local community, Jason expresses his appreciation by serving as director and general counsel on the boards of numerous area charitable and philanthropic organizations, including Community Housing Resource (CHR) (providing below market housing), Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), Med Vets Charitable Foundation (providing free prescription medicine to Veterans' service dogs), Sanibel School Fund (raising funds to hire additional public language teachers and technology), School Advisory Council (SAC) and Children’s Education Center.

Jason has also earned two consecutive appointments to the City of Sanibel Planning Commission, where he has earned a reputation for protecting citizens’ rights, and is currently the Chair of the Land Development Code Review Subcommittee.

As Jason’s experiences amply demonstrate, not only is he hard-working, intelligent, patriotic and decisive, he is resolutely enterprising and resilient as well. While working for other firms in state and federal court matters, he saved enough money to open his own firm on Sanibel in 2004. The timing could not have been worse as Hurricane Charley dramatically closed his office on Friday the 13th in August of that year. But like so many of his fellow Sanibel residents, business and property owners, he made repairs and re-opened, and has gone on to build a distinguished career representing a wide range of local and international clients from this District.

Clean Water and Conservative Values.
