Commissioner Albertus Maultsby
Mr. Albertus Maultsby was born and raised in Lake Alfred. His parents arrived in Florida right after the turn of the century so his pioneer roots within our community run deep. Albertus has had a rich employment history. At the tender age of eighteen he worked in the Citrus Industry and then went on to serve four years in the Army. He was a trained medic stationed at the 33rd field hospital in France. Upon his return from abroad, Mr. Maultsby worked for the Swift Company in Winter Haven and then went on to become a messenger/maintenance employee of the United States Postal Service where he served in Lake Alfred for 29 years. He currently owns and operates a local business, Maultsby Rentals.
Mr. Maultsby has always had a love for his community. His service has been noted on the Board of Adjustments, Polk County Code Enforcement Board, Polk County School Board Desegregation Committee and over ten years on the City of Lake Alfred City Commission. His City Commission tenure began in 1992 with four successful campaigns and only one defeat. Commissioner Maultsby’s seat number is one and his term expires in April of 2015.
Mr. Maultsby’s motto is “always spend less than you earn.”
