It’s that feeling of déjà vu all over again, as Democrat Calvin Ball and Republican Allan Kittleman battle it out for the top job in Howard County, just as they did four years ago. The only difference — Ball is fighting to keep his seat as county executive, which he took away from Kittleman in 2018, while Kittleman is hoping to regain his seat in the Nov. 8 general election. “Public service is very important to me,” Kittleman said. “I’m running because I think people in Howard County deserve better.” Kittleman, 64, a Republican who served as county executive from 2014 to 2018, said his commitment to public service was shaped at an early age by his father, the late Sen. Robert Kittleman, who was a member of the Maryland General Assembly from 2002 to 2004. He died Sept. 11, 2004.
