A life-long resident of Hooper, Roy and West Haven, Representative Mike Schultz has represented Utah House District 12 since 2015. He is committed to public service, limited government and personal liberty.
Mike grew up working on his grandfather’s cattle farm and learned from that experience one of life’s greatest lessons—the value of hard work. “Nothing in life is handed to you,” said Mike. “You’ve got to earn it.”
With this mind, and with the support of his parents, Mike began his career as an entrepreneur when he started a business selling worms to fisherman at the ripe age of 10. At 12, he took his first job milking cows at his neighbor’s dairy farm. By the age of 16 Mike started a hay hauling business and was sub-contracting with a ward member to roof houses. At the early age of 20, Mike earned his general contractor’s license and started building homes.
Since that time Mike has built and sold over 2,000 homes, developed and sold over 1,600 lots and created hundreds of jobs. Mike currently owns and serves as President for Castle Creek Homes, headquartered in Roy, Utah. Under Mike’s leadership, Castle Creek Homes was a top six builder in the state of Utah from 2009-2011. During that same period, Castle Creek Homes built more homes in Davis and Weber County than any other builder. In 2010, Castle Creek Homes was the winner of the Northern Wasatch Home Builder’s Association’s (NWHBA) Home Builder of the Year Award.
In 2014 Mike was elected to the Utah House of Representatives where he currently serves in a leadership position as the House Majority Whip. His legislative priorities include protecting private property rights, fighting for individual freedom, keeping taxes low, improved economic development, and increasing funding for education.
Mike’s greatest accomplishment, however, is marrying his wife, Melissa, and being the proud father of six children.
When not busy with work or family, Mike can be found in the great outdoors hunting, fishing, cattle ranching or snowmobiling.
