Baltimore Co. School District To Be Fully Air Conditioned By 2021 « CBS Baltimore

...Comptroller Peter Franchot says he’s fed up.
“I’m sick and tired of hearing about children who are sick and tired just from going to school in Baltimore County,” Franchot said.
At Tuesday’s town hall meeting, Comptroller Franchot and representatives for the governor never addressed the county’s proposal, but the two did release statements expressing their disappointment.
A spokesperson for Comptroller Franchot says in part, “What we heard today from the County Executive was not a serious or realistic proposal.”
One from the governor adds, “It’s nearly impossible to respond substantively to budget proposals delivered to the press before they are delivered to the Governor’s Office.”
Parents are tired of the fighting and just want a resolution.
“We need to get the kids comfortable and we need to worry about their safety, first and foremost,” Cox said.
The governor’s office added they look forward to reviewing the specifics of the proposal but say they don’t need more press conferences—they need solutions.
Comptroller Franchot says the amount of state aid Baltimore County receives per student is greater than several surrounding counties that all have air conditioned classrooms.


  1. I am sick and tired of Peter Franchot. If that blowhard wants to stick his nose into schools, he should do so right here where he lives, in Montgomery County. That way he might crawl out of the governor's pocket and see moldy, crumbly schools and under-resourced classrooms - due in no small part to state defunding.

    1. State defunding? Hysterical. Please explain.
      Do you even KNOW how MCPS spends Capital Budget money?
      Do you know how much "capital" money is diverted to non-capital spending?
      Do you know how school construction funds are handled?

    2. Are there any elected officials in Maryland who do not reside in MoCo?

  2. Who needs air conditioning when you can enjoy heat stroke all day?

    1. In MoCo it is a necessity in order to counter the political byproducts.
