As a business leader with a long history of success, Chrys knows what it takes to build opportunity, create jobs, and give a voice to our middle class.
Chrys refuses to accept that manufacturing’s best days are behind us. And he refuses to accept anything less than American global leadership—starting right here in Maryland.
Chrys was the youngest attorney ever to serve as Deputy Legal Counsel to the Governor of Maryland, under Bob Ehrlich. As a key executive with the National Association of Manufacturers, the largest industrial trade association in the United States, Chrys charted a course for strengthening manufacturing in Maryland and America and advanced American global leadership.
As a trial and appellate attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, Chrys represented the United States in hundreds of important cases. He even crafted some of the U.S. Attorney General's groundbreaking positions on personal freedom and criminal justice reform.
Born in East Baltimore and raised in Parkville, Chrys attended Baltimore County public schools and is a graduate of Calvert Hall College High School in Towson, Loyola University Maryland, and the University of Baltimore School of Law.
Chrys and his family know the struggles facing Maryland’s small businesses and middle class. They built Costas Inn in Dundalk—by focusing on hard work and doing the little things right. At Costas Inn, Chrys learned what it takes to run a business—and he learned that the middle class is better off when government gets out of the way and allows people to succeed. His hard work has helped keep his family’s restaurant open since 1971.
We can’t keep serving up more of the same. With your help, Chrys can bring about real change in Washington—and better results for the people of Maryland.
