Your News & Updates from the Office of Community Engagement and Constituent Services (CECS)
Dear Community Leaders and Members of District 4,

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend, and that the holiday spirit is starting to pickup in your homes and in your communities.

Last week marked the completion of County Executive Pittman's first year in office, and he had a very busy first year! The County Executive is proud of all that has been accomplished so far with the help of the County Council and community members like you, and is excited to keep working to make Anne Arundel County The Best Place For All. Be sure to watch the video he put out to mark the occasion. It's called 12 Months in 2 Minutes and can be found HERE.

On Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m. the County Executive will deliver his State of the County Address. We will live-stream the event at and we encourage you to follow along with us. We are proud of the direction our county is headed and we believe that government is at is best when residents are engaged, both to work with us and to challenge us when needed. Thank you for the role that you play in bettering Anne Arundel County.
