GOOD IDEA OR BAD IDEA – ENGLISH ONLY IN FRIENDSWOOD!

ENGLISH ONLY IN FRIENDSWOOD – WOULD YOU CALL IT DISCRIMINATION?

The city of Friendswood is exploring the possibility of allowing English to be the official language of the small city. But the Mayor W. Chris Peden wants the residents to vote on the issue rather than allow the city council to decide. It would require a charter amendment to move forward with the controversial idea. Friendswood is following the path of several other small Texas cities that have made English their official language despite the large number of Spanish speaking residents. Is this a good idea or one that smacks of discrimination? The Insite would like to hear your comments!
