County Executive Allan Kittleman has a nearly $95,000 cash advantage over his challenger, Democratic County Councilman Calvin Ball. Kittleman brought in more than twice the amount of Ball’s contributions in the last two months.
County Executive Allan Kittleman’s re-election efforts continue to receive major support after raising another $250,345 in the latest reporting period from August 22, 2018 – Oct. 21, 2018. The campaign has $268.253.47 on hand for the two weeks of the campaign and is gearing up for a major push to get out the vote for Kittleman.
“People across the spectrum support County Executive Kittleman because he cares about our education system first and foremost, is creating an atmosphere where businesses and jobs are welcome, is making much-needed improvements to the transportation system, and is tackling long-standing problems that prior administrations wouldn’t deal with,” campaign manager Sean Murphy said.
“As a bipartisan leader, County Executive Kittleman has been able to get things done that others thought couldn’t happen. When some said that a solution couldn’t be reached to end the previous school superintendent’s contract, he was the one trusted to mediate and now there’s a new leader of the Howard County Public School System. When others left behind the villages of Oakland Mills and Long Reach, he came in and brought new life and energy to those communities,” Murphy added. “It’s a tried and true motto that works: if you don’t care who gets the credit, awesome things can happen.”
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.
