Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Supports Bilingual Ballots

Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said on Tuesday that she supports the Department of Justice in its efforts to get a bilingual ballot in Cuyahoga County.
Brunner said the DOJ contacted county officials in July, telling them they would need to have ballots in English and Spanish,
The order came after studies showed the county was home to more than 6,300 Puerto Rican voters with limited English proficiency.
Brunner said the Voting Rights Act has special exceptions for certain groups of U.S. citizens.



“The act recognizes that there are groups of Americans who are educated in languages other than English, such as Native Americans or Eskimos or Puerto Ricans and, under that act, if there’s difficulty understanding English then they’re to be accommodated under federal law,” Brunner said on Tuesday.
“What’s difficult for people to understand is that the federal law recognizes that Puerto Rico, even though the schools are American schools, the children there are taught in Spanish,” Brunner said. “So the law recognizes if they were educated in Spanish and they move to the mainland, if the have limited English proficiency, we need to accommodate them.”
Brunner said there is no specific number of voters a county must have in order to require a bilingual ballot, Hirsch reported.more

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
