Kittleman proposes government accountability program

With fall and election season in full force, every week seems set to bring a new platform or proposal for both of Howard's county executive candidates.

On Monday, Republican candidate Allan Kittleman, a state senator from West Friendship, released a proposal for "HoCoStat," a performance-review system with a goal of holding government accountable.

"As county executive, I will not only make information available and be transparent in my actions, but I will also establish goals in a number of areas that will help government increase responsiveness, improve efficiency and heighten accountability," he said in a release announcing the proposal.
