“The Supreme Court’s decision to allow a lower court decision to stand that requires political non-profits to disclose their donors when trying to influence federal elections is a step in the right direction in keeping our election process transparent.
The type of “dark money” that we are seeing more and more frequently in our elections creates distrust and uncertainty, and can influence the outcomes of elections in ways we can only imagine. Transparency is a disinfectant that can help ensure fair elections at every level of public service, not just at the federal level.
Here, in Howard County, we must reject the use of such dark-money, non-profits so that our elections are kept free of improper influences from unknown sources.” – Allan Kittleman
Kittleman was elected to serve as Howard County’s 9th County Executive and sworn into office on December 1st, 2014. Since taking office, the Kittleman Administration has earned high marks for turning around an inherited $16M budget deficit and creating a $28M surplus just 24 months later through effective management and fiscal prudence.
In almost four years as County Executive, Kittleman has proven himself to be an independent leader focused on improving the lives of families in Howard County. Kittleman has fought to create jobs, improve schools, and reduce traffic congestion in Howard County. He made rebuilding Ellicott City a priority after the floods of both 2016 and 2018, focused efforts on celebrating the County’s diversity, and turned Downtown Columbia into a reality, all in a fiscally prudent and open manner.
