Jason C. Buckel (born November 3, 1971) is an American politician, and the minority leader in the Maryland House of Delegates. He has represented District 1B since 2015. He is a member of the Republican Party.In October 2021, he was one of five Maryland state legislators from Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties who sent a pair of letters to West Virginia officials asking about annexation of Western Maryland to West Virginia. These letters caused a local uproar, with Allegany County officials calling the request a political stunt, an embarrassment and unneeded distraction. Following criticism from local officials and some constituents, Buckel and State Senator George Edwards issued a letter withdrawing support for the secession proposal.
