As lawmakers in Annapolis continue to consider whether to loosen Maryland's marijuana laws, a bipartisan pair of senators plans to introduce a proposal Wednesday to decriminalize possession of small amounts of the drug. “We're not trying to encourage people to smoke pot,” said Baltimore County Democrat Sen. Bobby Zirkin, who is leading the effort. “I don't think that having a joint should be a jail-able offense. I don't think that's the definition of a crime.” Under the bill, it would not longer be a crime to have less than 10 grams of marijuana - a proposal that cleared the Senate last year but didn't get a vote in the House of Delegates.  Instead, the proposal calls for making marijuana a civil offense that could result in a ticket for adults and drug treatment for minors.

Several weeks ago I, and other women voters in Howard County received four glossy mailers attacking Allan Kittleman, the Republican candidate for county executive. The mailers were distributed by Mr. Kittleman's opponent, Democrat Courtney Watson, and her political allies. The allegations they contain are shocking and misleading. The truth is Mr. Kittleman never "called for arming teachers and principals. " A 2006 newspaper article mistakenly attributed that statement to him. The Watson team has admitted its error but has not sent out a retraction.

As a prominent Republican in the Democrat-controlled House of Delegates for much of the past decade, Howard County Del. Robert H. Kittleman has toiled with honor if not always with success. But now that the GOP is set to have a greater say in Annapolis matters, Mr. Kittleman should become a key player in Maryland's brave new world of two-party politics -- possibly as House minority leader.Democrats still dominate the General Assembly, though to a considerably lesser degree after the voting of Nov. 8. Whereas roughly one in six legislators elected in 1990 was a Republican, about one in three chosen last month belongs to the GOP. Many of the newer delegates were drilled in how to run a campaign by Bob Kittleman, for which they owe him allegiance.

Y a gotta love politicians accusing other elected officials of being, well, political. Democrats and Republicans agreed 100 percent Thursday morning at the annual Howard County Chamber of Commerce legislative breakfast panel discussion that their fellow elected officials are not going to raise any taxes next fiscal year, though they disagreed on motives. State Sen. Allan H. Kittleman, the senate minority leader, said it's all about next year's elections, and warned the GOP-friendly business group to watch out for "historic" tax increases in 2011.

Since taking on the post of Anne Arundel County Executive early this year, Laura Neuman hasn't had much time to spend in her old stomping grounds of Howard County. But the former president and CEO of the Howard County Economic Development Authority, who was appointed Anne Arundel County Executive in late February, made time to stop by the Savage Mill Friday, Nov. 22, to endorse Republican state Sen. Allan Kittleman in his bid for Howard County executive. "Allan is willing to make the tough decisions," Neuman told the group of more than 100 people gathered in the basement of Ram's Head Tavern for the event, sponsored by Merritt Properties.

The race to lead Maryland's most affluent county began Tuesday as state Sen. Allan H. Kittleman launched his bid to become just the second Republican to be elected Howard County executive. In an afternoon appearance at the Columbia Lakefront, Kittleman, 54, said there's still room for improvement in the Baltimore-Washington suburb lauded for its public schools and featured in national magazines as one of the country's best places to live. "Even though we are on top, it will take hard work and commitment to stay on top," Kittleman told a crowd of about 200 people at Lake Kittamaqundi.

Since the late 1980s, Del. Robert Kittleman of Howard County has repeatedly tried to reform the state's embarrassing legislative scholarship program, a political perk that enables senators and delegates to dole out several millions of dollars annually to students in their districts.But just as quickly as Mr. Kittleman proposed his bills, his Annapolis colleagues shot them down. No surprise there, because legislators have long been loath to surrender the program.So Mr. Kittleman shouldn't have been caught off guard by the rude welcome that he and his latest reform measure received last Tuesday in a hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee.

Robert Harvey Kittleman, neophyte minority leader of the Maryland House of Delegates, utters an audible sigh as he leaves the weekly meeting of the 41-member Republican caucus. "It's pandemonium," he says. "Really tough. We have to decide which way to go."He's talking about strategies Republicans should take in the 141-seat House, where they're heavily outnumbered. But he also could be talking about surviving as minority leader beyond this legislative session.Survival was never supposed to be an issue.

Howard County's representation in Annapolis will see some significant change after this year's session comes to a close. This will be the last session for some of the Howard delegation's members. District 13 Sen. Jim Robey and District 12B Del. Liz Bobo, both Democrats, announced last year that they would not run for re-election. District 9 Sen. Allan Kittleman will give up his seat after 2014 in the hopes of becoming the county's first Republican county executive since 1998. And Dels.

Here's the dish: The two candidates running to be the next Howard County executive met for breakfast Monday at the Double-T Diner in Ellicott City. They described the dining-table discussion as cordial. On the menu were family updates and analysis of local campaigns. They said they didn't spend much time talking about their own race. As for what they ordered? One candidate had scrambled eggs; the other preferred their eggs over easy. Perhaps keeping the county's push for healthy habits in mind, both candidates had a side of fruit.

Howard County Councilwoman Courtney Watson joined the 2014 race for county executive today, pledging to safeguard the affluent Baltimore-Washington area's much-celebrated quality of life and to "do more, achieve more, for our citizens. " In prepared remarks, Watson, a 51-year-old Democrat from Ellicott City, lauded the achievements of the council's Democratic majority and County Executive Ken Ulman, also a Democrat.

I was delighted to hear that Allan Kittleman is running for County Executive; he's a very decent guy with a lot of good experience. I've heard people ask why we should make any change in county government, when things are going so well in Howard County. The fact is, since the Ulman Administration is term-limited, we're going to have new people running the county, no matter who we elect. I liked hearing that education is Mr. Kittleman's first priority, and that he will do something about the transportation problems we face.

Republican delegates, giddy with the excitement of electoral victory, picked Robert H. Kittleman of Howard County as their new leader yesterday, a move they hope will keep pressure on the General Assembly's ruling Democrats.Mr. Kittleman won a closer than expected 21-20 victory over Delegate George C. Edwards of Garrett County in the race for House minority leader. Mr. Kittleman had vowed to continue the more confrontational style of outgoing Minority Leader Ellen R. Sauerbrey, while Mr. Edwards was considered more likely to try to forge alliances with conservative Democrats.

District 14, which covers all of the area west of Clarksville Pike (Route 108), is the only part of Howard County where Republicans dominate. Largely rural and conservative, this district, which includes a portion of Montgomery County, has nurtured several GOP leaders who are poised to take on greater roles in Annapolis.Given the apparent mood of the district and the potential of the candidates, Sen. Christopher J. McCabe deserves re-election. A year-old development officer, Mr. McCabe has proven to be an effective legislator who has been active on such issues as adoption and ethics reform.

I was very happy to learn that Sen. Allan Kittleman is running for Howard County Executive. He is just the type of person we need leading our county. Sen. Kittleman has a long history of working for the residents of Howard County on both the County Council and Maryland Senate. It has been over 25 years since we had a County Executive with state legislative experience. With the state mandates that seem to increase with every year, it will be great to have a County Executive who understands state government and how to make sure that we are treated fairly by the state.

On page 6 of the June 13 Columbia Flier, on lower half of the page, the headline was "Howard Library System receives magazine's honor. " A very innocuous and deceptive lead to announcing that Howard County Library was named 2013 Library of the Year! Our library is designated number one out of 21,000 public libraries in the United States, Canada and Mexico by the well-regarded Library Journal and the Flier doesn't have even a banner notice on the front page, or an honest, congratulatory headline for the article?
