KITTLEMAN RELEASES FUNDRAISING REPORT

For Immediate Release, January 21, 2016

The Committee to Elect Allan Kittleman announced it raised $571,995 and had $513,973.48 in the bank in the most recent reporting period ending January 13, 2016, according to reports to be filed with the Maryland State Board of Elections. The majority of donations came from individual donors in amounts of $200 or less. 

“Just as I said the evening I was sworn into office, I am humbled and honored by the support shown to me by the people of Howard County.” Kittleman said. “I believe our fundraising progress is a direct result of our countless hours spent meeting with residents in every corner of the county, organizing citizen task forces on key issues, and making it a practice to tour schools each week. As County Executive, I rely heavily on the input of citizens at every level and I believe people appreciate that.”

Since taking office on December 1, 2014, the County Executive organized citizen task forces on issues involving Planning and Development, Education, and Aging among others. The County Executive himself hosted four town hall meetings, a practice that will continue throughout his term in office.  

“I believe in a citizen government whereby everyone has a voice that is heard. I want to thank the many members of the community for their time and energy assisting my Administration write and propose key legislation that will make County Government more efficient, better serve our seniors, bring jobs and economic growth to Howard County, and ensure our children have not just the best education in Maryland, but in the United States.”
