Allan H. Kittleman (born October 20, 1958) has been a member of the Maryland Senate since 2004, representing Carroll County and Howard County. He was Minority Whip from 2007 to 2008. On September 16, 2008 Senator Kittleman replaced outgoing Minority Leader David Brinkley. Senator Nancy Jacobs took over the Whip position.[by whom?] He served as a member of the Howard County Council from 1998 to 2004.

He is the son of the late Robert H. Kittleman and was appointed by Governor Bob Ehrlich (R) to fill his seat in the Maryland Senate. In 2006 Kittleman won re-election in a landslide against Democrat Richard Corkran. Widely viewed as a moderate, Kittleman frequently mediates between the liberal and conservative factions in the party.[citation needed] In 2010 Senator Kittleman defeated Jim Adams by a wide margin in the general election, he faced no primary opposition. On January 30, 2010, the Senate Republican Caucus again choose him to serve as Minority Leader with Senator David R. Brinkley as Minority Whip, who defeated Senator Nancy Jacobs.

Senator Kittleman resigned as Minority Leader on January 18, 2011. Senator Kittleman declared his candidacy for Howard County Executive in 2014. During the 2011 General Assembly session, Kittleman broke ranks with his fellow Republicans and voted in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage.[2]


Kittleman attended Atholton High School in Howard County. He received his B.A. from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 1981 and his J.D. with honors from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1988.


Kittleman was admitted to the Maryland Bar in 1988 and was an associate with Smith, Somerville & Case, 1988–91 (legal assistant, 1984–88) and a partner with Herwig & Humphreys, LLP from 1996 to 2003 (associate, 1991–96).
