Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman launched his 2018 re-election campaign Monday evening at the Columbia lakefront – the same location where he announced his candidacy for county executive four years ago.

More than 100 Howard County officials, business owners and residents gathered June 12, holding red and yellow campaign signs that read “Kittleman” and “Independent Leader – People, not politics.” District 5 Councilman Greg Fox, Howard County Sheriff Bill McMahon and Howard County Fire Chief John Butler were among the crowd.
During his announcement, Kittleman detailed county accomplishments under his leadership since 2013, including eliminating a $15.8 million deficit, restructuring county government offices and establishing local business initiatives.
“I’m thrilled to have this many people to support us and I’m looking forward to the campaign. We’ll have a lot of things to talk about,” Kittleman said. “Howard County will hopefully have a bright future and people can expect our quality of life to continue to improve.”
