Littmann Is Running For Ward 5

| April 22, 2013 | 0 Comments

littmann-suitAlderman Jared Littmann (Ward 5) announced today that he is a candidate in the 2013 City elections to remain as Alderman for Ward 5. Speaking at the Green Drinks Annapolis event on Earth Day, Littmann stated, “It has been an honor and privilege to represent Ward 5 on the City Council where I have focused my time and energy on issues raised by my constituents plus those pertaining to the budget, the environment, traffic, and existing businesses and vacancies throughout Annapolis.”

“Earth Day is a reminder that we are not bystanders to the impacts we cause to our environment. Similarly, I feel that this is my opportunity to not be a bystander, but rather to contribute to and help improve our wonderful City,” Littmann said. “When everyone gives back to the community, be it participating in a school fundraiser or voicing support or objections to the City Dock plans, we all benefit. This is one of the ways I want to give back to the City to which I feel connected, that supports my business, and is where I live and raise my children.”

Combining his education and experience as an engineer, attorney, and business owner, Littmann hopes to continue the strides Annapolis has made to restore its fiscal health by adding to and protecting its savings accounts, ensuring that the services Annapolis provides are efficient and cost-effective, and showing restraint on discretionary expenditures. Having its fiscal house in order will allow the City to improve its infrastructure, Littmann added.

Littmann has an Environmental Engineering degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and a law degree, with a focus on environmental law, from the University of Maryland. After law school, Littmann worked as an attorney for seven years, including four in the County Attorney’s Office for Montgomery County.

Littmann has already put that experience to use. In one of his first council sessions, he proposed an amendment for the spring boat show lease to increase the number of recycling containers. Recently, he proposed a resolution that seeks to improve the process that the City uses, under the Forest Conservation Act, when reviewing large development projects proposed in the City. That resolution has been introduced to the City Council and is awaiting a public hearing and final vote. Littmann has also proposed examining the impact of potential large developments to the public schools in the City.

Littmann is the owner of K&B True Value on Forest Drive. He believes that he can apply the lessons learned in business to his position as alderman, such as the need to keep to a budget and to stay focused on a vision for the City’s future.
