Here is something I hope to see more of in the future…a free to attend event for Allan Kittleman (our Howard County Executive). Here is information I received via email:
SAVE THE DATE!

“A very special announcement” – my guess is that he will be announcing that he is running for reelection…but that is just my guess. I plan to attend to hear the announcement.
I am a little surprised that the Kittleman team has not created
a Facebook event for this yet(Update – someone on the Kittleman team must have read my post because now there is a Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1907625612855118/) . They do have this event listed on their website: https://kittleman.com/event/attend-special-announcement-rally-howard-county-executive-allan-kittleman/…maybe a good idea to put this information out via social media soon?
To be honest, the social media accounts associated to Allan Kittleman (relating to campaign activities) has not been great. If the announcement is that he is running for reelection, I am hoping to see a significant improvement of these accounts (especially Facebook and Twitter). I had rated these accounts as some of the best in the state back when he originally ran for this office. These accounts were very active and informative…now it is just reposting some of the posts from his “official government accounts” and not a lot of other useful information. Again, hopefully they make the necessary improvements to online outreach activities to potential voters after the 12th. I will be watching closely!
Will you be attending the event?
