The Mayor of San Juan Capistrano, Brian Maryott, this week announced his campaign for the 49th Congressional District, where he hopes to win the seat from first-term Democrat Mike Levin. On Tuesday Maryott appeared on KUSI about his campaign (watch the clip here).

“In just a few short months Congressman Levin has affirmed that he is in fact too extreme for our district,” Maryott told SD Rostra. “His reckless Green New Deal would cost our country millions of jobs, and inflict major financial damage on San Diego and Orange County families.  My approach is different – I’m a Certified Financial Planner and local elected official who has spent my career helping people and my local community. I’ll champion fiscal stewardship, fight for secure borders and always do what’s right for this district, not fringe socialist interests.”

Press Release

Brian Maryott, businessman and Mayor of San Juan Capistrano, announced the launch of his congressional campaign live on KUSI’s “Good Morning San Diego.”

Maryott is a Certified Financial Planner who has spent most of his career helping families save for a rainy day, send their kids to college and retire with dignity. He’s also a local elected official with a proven ability to work with people from all walks of life to get results.

“Congressman Levin’s first few months in office have shown him to be too extreme for our district,” said Maryott. He added, “His reckless Green New Deal would cost our country millions of jobs, tens of trillions of dollars in new national debt and inflict major financial damage on San Diego and Orange County families.  Levin’s extreme irresponsibility on this and other issues show him to be out of touch with the vast majority of families in the 49th Congressional district.”

Maryott said that he’s running to restore common-sense representation to this coastal, swing congressional district. Maryott also cites the broken healthcare system, making our borders safe and secure to protect our families and communities, ensuring stable economic growth and development, ending out of control government spending, and encouraging responsible stewardship of our environment are issues that will be central to his campaign.

“As your Congressman, I pledge to always do what’s best for our district, not cater to special interests and fringe socialist interests,” concluded Maryott. 

CA-49 is a swing district with a Cook PVI of R+1 and a R+3 voter registration advantage.  To learn more about Maryott and his campaign, please visit

Brian Maryott Bio

Brian is a conservative businessman, Mayor of San Juan Capistrano and a father who is running for Congress to restore common-sense representation to the 49th Congressional district.  As a local elected official and former executive, Brian has proven he can work with anyone who has good ideas – he will bring that exact same approach to Congress.

Brian is a Certified Financial Planner – he spent the majority of his career helping hundreds of individuals and families save for a rainy day, send their kids to college, retire with dignity and invest in their future.  He steadily grew his planning business and was eventually promoted to Senior Vice President of his company where he helped manage hundreds of employees and billions in client assets.  As our national debt continues to grow, Brian’s financial background and commitment to sound growth and fiscal stewardship is needed in Congress now more than ever.

Brian learned about hard work and responsibility at an early age.  He shoveled dog waste as a kennel attendant at 15, worked as a dishwasher and busboy in a restaurant chain – became a cook, server and ultimately an assistant manager while he worked full time to pay his way through college.  He even did a stint on an overnight janitorial crew to keep his student loans to a manageable level.

Brian and his wife Michele have been living their version of the American Dream in southern California for over 25 years.  They live in San Juan Capistrano where Brian serves as Mayor and they raise three wonderful children, Max, Tessa and Emme.
