Senator Ron Young Chooses Special Interests over Education
First he becomes unhinged in committee, and now he is taking the side of special interests over kids in Frederick. Today, Senator Ron Young (District 3, Frederick County) opposed two amendments to the state budget to take $12.5 million from a downtown hotel project and instead support Waverly Elementary school or the Frederick Rescue Mission to help the homeless.
This is particularly troubling because funding for the downtown hotel was not included in Governor Hogan's budget and Waverly Elementary school is currently at 157% capacity. Backroom deals were cut to include this funding in the first place, which shouldn't be happening.
It's unacceptable that Senator Young chose to support a special interest project instead of reducing overcrowding in Frederick County Schools.
