J. Lowell Stoltzfus (born July 15, 1949) is a Republican Senator, and former Minority Leader, representing Maryland's 38th Legislative District, which covers parts of Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester.
In 1998 Stoltzfus co-sponsored a bill that would have allowed Eastern Shore of Maryland residents to vote in a straw poll on secession from Maryland. He has been an outspoken critic of the University of Maryland, College Park's inability to control the illegal, often violent and destructive actions of the student body.
On August 6, 2009, Senator Stoltzfus announced that he would not seek reelection in 2010 so that he may spend more time with his wife and work at his nursery.
