County Executive Pittman today named Chris Trumbauer as Anne Arundel County Budget Officer. Trumbauer has been serving as Acting Budget Officer since October 12. In addition to his role as Budget Officer, Trumbauer will continue to serve as a senior policy advisor to the County Executive.

“Chris Trumbauer has been, and will remain, a pillar of our administration,” said County Executive Pittman. “He has counseled our team in every aspect of governing from the day I took office, including and especially during budget season. By installing Chris as Budget Officer, we ensure that fiscal discipline is at the forefront of every decision we make throughout the year, and that there is a robust line of communication between the budget team and the administration. This brilliant and generous public servant will continue to guide me and our team through the challenges we face in the coming years.”

County Executive Pittman also announced seven virtual town halls over the next month to discuss the upcoming fiscal 2022 budget. Each meeting will focus on an individual County Council district and feature opening remarks from County Executive Pittman and the Council Member representing the district. The County Executive will give a brief budget overview presentation and then attendees will be invited to make public comments.

The County’s interactive budget tool has been updated and is now live at aacounty.org/yourbudget. The tool enables users to see how the County’s tax rates compare to other counties, examine revenue and expenses of the current year’s budget, explore approximate costs of programs, equipment, and staff positions, and adjust tax rates and add expenses to calculate the fiscal impact.

According to a County press release:
