Calvin Ball

A Howard County councilman has entered the race to try to unseat County Executive Allan Kittleman.

Calvin Ball, a higher education professor currently serving his third and final term in the council, announced his run at a rally Thursday to a crowd chanting his name.

“Things are good here in Howard County, but I believe they can be even better,” he told a room of supporters. “We need to reach higher to make sure that all of our neighbors here feel included and wanted…that development and quality of life are brought into a better balance…that our focus is on our children’s success in every school.”

He made a subtle jab at his incumbent Republican opponent: “For the past year I’ve been surprised and dismayed by the silence of many of our leaders here in Howard County as President Donald Trump and his administration have sought to demean and divide us.”
