Partnerships are paramount to Mayor Pantelides. He is proud of the numerous outreach efforts already accomplished in his first few months in office with the Anne Arundel County School System and the County Executive, along with local and state elected officials.
The Mayor is a third generation Annapolitian, whose grandparents arrived in Annapolis from Greece and Cyprus in the 1940's, and opened The Royal Restaurant in the heart of the City’s historic district.
His personal experience as an Eagle Scout, a volunteer with the Annapolis Jaycees, Habitat for Humanity, 21st Century Education Foundation, and faith-based groups give him a unique perspective of those in need.
Michael John Pantelides was born in Annapolis on September 5, 1983 to parents John and Gloria Pantelides. He attended Kneseth Israel Kindergarden, Germantown Elementary School, St. Martins Lutheran School in Annapolis and Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn. In 2007 he received a B.A. in Philosophy from West Virginia University.
