"It's time to stop the weaponization of COVID-19 against Americans. An unelected bureaucrat, who doesn't even live in Maryland, should not have the power or authority to override the decisions of parents for their own children's education," House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga said. "Parents, and the nonpublic schools children attend, have a much greater concern about the health and safety of their own families than any politician or bureaucrat."
"It is horrific. It is educational malfeasance," Szeliga said Friday at a meeting of the county's delegation.
