Former Sen. Middleton Lands Lobbying Gig

Former state Sen. Thomas M. “Mac” Middleton, the former chairman of the powerful Finance Committee, has signed on as a lobbyist with Cornerstone Government Affairs, a national firm with an Annapolis outpost.

Middleton was elected to the state Senate, representing Charles County, in 1994, and he served as chairman of the Finance panel from 2003 to 2019. He lost his bid for a seventh term in the Senate in the 2018 Democratic primary.

Prior to serving in the Senate, Middleton, whose family has operated a farm in the Waldorf area for centuries, served as chair of the Charles County Planning Commission.

For the past two years, Middleton has worked as an adviser to Maryland Auto Insurance, the quasi-governmental entity that is the provider of last resort for motorists who are denied auto insurance by at least two private carriers.

Middleton joins a seven-person Maryland team at Cornerstone Government Affairs whose members include two former fellow Southern Maryland politicians, ex-Dels. Van T. Mitchell and John Bohanan, and former state Sen. Patrick J. Hogan, who was one of Middleton’s closest friends when they served together in the Senate.
