QAC Slated to become “English Only” County


On February 21, 2012, English became the official language of Frederick County, the first Maryland county to do so. And one week later, Queen Anne’s County  is considering joining the club. QA’s Commissioner Dave Olds has proposed that English become the official language of QAC. This will be discussed at a public hearing on April 24, 2012.

Anne Arundel County might have been the third county to consider the law, but a pending proposal was apparently withdrawn after a controversy arose when Anne Arundel Commissioner Richard B. Ladd publicly used a racial slur about people of Asian decent.
