Bryan Simonaire (born September 6, 1963) is a Maryland State Senator representing District 31.



Bryan Simonaire was first elected to the Maryland State Senate in 2006 to represent District 31, which is a part of Anne Arundel County, in Maryland.

The District 31 seat was long held by Democrat Philip C. Jimeno, who announced that he was retiring in 2006. [1] Simonaire defeated Democratic challenger Walter J. Shandrowsky in a tight race in the 2006 general election. After trailing in initial vote counts on Election night, Simonaire pulled ahead when absentee ballots were counted. In some parts of the state the Republican effort to get people to vote by absentee overturned some election night results. Simonaire won with just over 50% of the vote in a district that saw Republican affiliation grow by 22% in 4 years. [2]


Simonaire graduated from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC. There he received his B.S. in computer science in 1985. Simonaire returned to college to receive his M.S. in engineering science from Loyola College in Maryland, where he graduated in 2005. He has been a member of Upsilon Pi Epsilon, a computer science honor society, since 1993.


After graduating from Bob Jones University, Simonaire worked as a computer systems engineer, for Westinghouse, where he worked until 1994. In 1995, he took a position at Northrop Grumman as a senior systems engineer. (NOTE: This was likely due to Northrup Grumman's acquisition of Westinghouse and may or may not represent a job change. See [1])

Simonaire was on the Board of Directors of the North County Republican Club [2] for 2 years. He is a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and he is the creator of Simonaire Santas for abused children and the founder of Heroes-at-Home [3], a group that he started in 2002.
