I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the Dulaney High School community on the success of the vote at the Baltimore County Board of Education on March 7th.
I was in attendance and testified against the funding of a severely deficient renovation plan for Dulaney. What is clearly needed is a new Dulaney High School that will be designed for the needs of current and future students. The vote last night was a clear step in the right direction. I want to thank the School Board for heeding the well organized and unified community opposition to the proposed limited renovation.
However, the Dulaney community’s hard work for a new school has only just begun. The County Executive has publicly stated that there will be no new Dulaney High School and that the funds for Dulaney will be spent elsewhere.
The pressure that the Dulaney community exerted to kill the deficient limited renovation plan must be DOUBLED DOWN on the County Executive and the School Board to fund a new School. I will do my best, as your Councilman, to help the community achieve this goal.

To those who will decide the fate of Dulaney High School, a plea from a 40 year resident of the area: build a new school for our community. We could easily have sent our son to private school, but located ourselves in this community because of the quality of the public schools. Now, as a senior resident here, I want future generations to enjoy the same advantage of a quality education in a good environment.
Please do the right thing and build a modern facility that we can all be proud of.
