Republican Allan Kittleman got a boost Saturday from Gov. Larry Hogan and two lieutenant governors — one current, one former – as he seeks to regain the job as county executive he lost four years to Democrat Calvin Ball. “He was an unbelievable county executive for Howard County,” Hogan told several hundred people gathered at the Kittleman farm in West Friendship. Hogan emphasized Kittleman’s ability to “work across the aisle” and govern in a bipartisan way. The three Republicans — Hogan, Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, a longtime Columbia resident, and former Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, now a TV and podcast commentator — all emphasized Kittleman’s positive qualities without mentioning Ball.
