Letters: Peroutka is anything but a supporter of schools

The letter from Spear Lancaster (The Capital, Oct. 14) regarding Anne Arundel County Councilman Michael Peroutka is blatantly false. Throughout Mr. Peroutka’s tenure on the council he has consistently voted against schools.

Twice, he voted against provisions to stem school overcrowding. In 2017, he voted against seeking available funding from the state for development of Anne Arundel Community College, an educational and economic jewel of our county. In 2016, he was the lone councilman to vote against allocating unanticipated surplus funds to schools, and did so in three separate votes.

Many of us believe this is not beneficial for Anne Arundel County.
