Howard County was handed an early Christmas present Saturday night from the Baltimore Sun’s Editorial Board. In the Editorial Board’s annual review piece, the Howard County Executive was named as one of the winners amongst Maryland’s elected leaders in 2016.
The Sun cited Allan Kittleman’s performance while leading the County through two important and difficult issues: the flooding in Ellicott City and the removal of Sheriff James F. Fitzgerald.
[Kittleman] took a hands-on approach to the flood recovery, marshalling local and state resources to help the historic community rebuild quickly. And he helped lead the bi-partisan condemnation that resulted in the resignation of James F. Fitzgerald and his replacement by the widely respected former Howard police chief, Bill McMahon. – Baltimore Sun Editorial Board
Kittleman was quick to pass credit to his team. On Facebook, County Executive Kittleman had this to say:
I am honored to be recognized alongside Gov. Larry Hogan, Mayor Catherine Pugh, Senator-Elect Chris Van Hollen, Congressman-Elect Anthony Brown, and Comptroller Peter Franchot by the Baltimore Sun’s Editorial Board. I am very fortunate to have a great team that works tirelessly on behalf of the citizens of Howard County.
