The Sergeant at Arms is responsible for Lodge Security, maintaining order during meetings, and overseeing all ballots during the voting process.
Mike is a retired Wicomico County Sheriff’s Deputy. He served the citizens of Maryland for over 30 years after he began his career with the Crisfield Police Department. In 1991 Mike made a lateral transfer to the Wicomico Sheriff’s Office and, within a short time, he was promoted to the rank of Corporal and assigned to the bike patrol unit. Mike was a founding member of the Lodge in 1991 and served as the Lodge President in the late 1990s.
He left law enforcement in early 2000 to run a successful construction company in Salisbury. However, after realizing how much he missed being a police officer, he returned to the Sheriff’s Office in 2007. He served in many positions, including the narcotics task force, road patrol, and the motor unit. Mike retired in May 2021 to focus on his current construction company, Mike Houck Construction, LLC. Mike is also an Army Veteran, with 4 years of active service.
