Jared Littmann Announces Candidacy for Mayor of Annapolis

Jared Littmann, co-owner of K&B True Value, former Alderman for Ward 5, and a prominent figure in the Annapolis community, officially announced his candidacy for Mayor of Annapolis.

Originally from Wayne, New Jersey, Littmann explains that his father’s teachings on hard work and fiscal prudence and his mother’s commitment to public education laid the foundation for his future endeavors. Jared earned an Environmental Engineering degree from Washington University in St. Louis and a law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law.

After practicing law for seven years, including a clerkship for Circuit Court Judge Ann Harrington and working in the County Attorney’s Office for Montgomery County, Littmann shifted careers in 2004 to join his in-laws’ hardware store, K&B True Value. In 2007, he and his wife, Marlene Niefeld, purchased the business, emphasizing environmental sustainability and becoming the first and only Annapolis business to generate all its electricity through solar panels. Throughout his hardware store career, Jared co-founded a liquidation hardware business, served as a corporate director and Board Chair of the True Value Company, and was elected Alderman for Ward 5 in Annapolis. Marlene, a native Annapolitan, and Jared have lived in the City since 2010 and have two children, Isabel and Zach.
