As Tom Quirk bulldozes the Dulaney community with this sudden halt to the County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's intention to place Dulaney High School in the new school planning budget, he has no plan (“Baltimore County Council opposes building new Dulaney High School,” Feb. 13). Mr. Quirk has never visited the antiquated, failing Dulaney facility. Is he aware of the mounds of research that brought Baltimore County Public Schools and County Executive Kamenetz to this decision? Ironically, he rallied other council members to join his band to stop any plans to replace one of the worst school facilities in a severely overcrowded section of Baltimore County.
Friends of Dulaney has worked over four years correcting and compiling facts that fully support a new school. In addition, Councilwoman Vicki Almond and Councilman Wade Kach have toured Dulaney numerous times. He has remained our advocate for years. Friends of Dulaney has reached out to Ms. Almond several times this month, and she has no response or dialogue. That’s not to mention the mounds of other county and state leadership who agree publicly on building a new Dulaney High.
Mr. Quirk needs to do is homework and not create political mayhem that will haunt the Dulaney community and possibly other schools in need.
