Comptroller Franchot launches petition for air-conditioning in Baltimore County schools

Comptroller Peter Franchot is launching a petition drive to try to help Baltimore County parents protest the failure of the county govenrment to fund air-conditioning for its schools. Franchot, who is believed to be interested in being the next governor, has taken on the cause of air-conditioning in the county schools, a particularly hot button issue for parents and teachers in the county and city.
