A life-long resident of Hooper, Roy and West Haven, Representative Mike Schultz has represented Utah House District 12 since 2015. He has been the Speaker of the House since November 2023.

Schultz learned the value of hard work at a young age by working on his grandfather’s cattle farm, selling worms to fishermen, and milking cows at a neighbor’s dairy farm. When he was 16 years old Mike started a hay hauling business and was roofing homes. At the early age of 20, Mike earned his general contractor’s license and started building homes. Schultz has owned and operated several small businesses, including his home building company, which he stepped away from in 2023. Currently he owns and operates a family ranch in Croydon, Utah.

Speaker Schultz has a passion for public service and has championed policies like increasing funding for Utah students, conserving Utah’s water supply, and investing in transportation infrastructure all while balancing the budget and cutting taxes. He’s known for his ability to bring people together to build partnership and get things done. Mike believes common sense and straight talk should guide the way.

Mike and his wife, Melissa, are the proud parents of six children and three grandchildren. When not busy with work, he can be found in the great outdoors hunting, fishing, snowmobiling or fixing something on the ranch.
