Neil C. Parrott (born July 30, 1970) is an American politician who represents District 2A in the Maryland House of Delegates.



Born and raised in Maryland, Parrott graduated from Old Mill High School in 1988. He went on to the University of Maryland at College Park where he graduated with a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering in 1994; he subsequently obtained his Professional Engineers License in 2000. He later attended graduate school and in 2006 graduated from Mount Saint Mary's University with an MBA.

Parrott began his career at the Maryland State Highway Administration where he concentrated on traffic engineering. He went on from there to become the Deputy Director of Public Works for the City of Frederick. After that, Mr. Parrott began working full time at Traffic Solutions Incorporated (TRSI), a traffic engineering firm he founded.

In the legislature

Parrott was sworn in as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates in January 2011. He was assigned to the House Judiciary Committee. Due to the State's legislative redistricting passed in 2012, but not taking effect until after the 2014 General Elections, District 2B and District 2A were combined to create one district. This created a two-at-large member district, District 2A. After winning re-election in his new district in 2014, Parrott continued to serve on the House Judiciary Committee.

Ballot initiatives

In 2012, Parrott founded an organization,, to coordinate petitioning laws he opposes to be placed on ballot initiatives. That year, his organization was successful in putting three laws on the ballot—marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples, in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants, and a proposed Congressional redistricting map—but all three were upheld by Maryland voters. Two later petition attempts by the organization—a 2013 bill abolishing the death penalty in Maryland, and a 2014 bill ensuring employment and housing protections for transgender Marylanders—fell short of the threshold to get on the ballot.
