Official English Is Campaign Issue In Baltimore County
State Del. Pat McDonough has pledged to make English the official language of Baltimore County in Maryland as part of his campaign for county executive.
McDonough has advocated for official English in the state of Maryland in the past, and now he is pushing the idea locally in the Republican primary campaign for county executive. McDonough has stated that he would use an executive order or an ordinance in his bid for official English in Baltimore County.
McDonough also wants to create a commission “to study the amount of taxpayers money spent in the education system on non-English speaking students.”
McDonough observed, “We’re trying to save money, and one of the ways we can save it is to not become multi-cultural government. It’s an economic initiative. It has nothing to do with their culture or their country of origin.”
