Hispanic leaders upset over Latino representation in Pr. George’s County jobs

Sep 7, 2013 by

Blacks need to be concerned as Hispanics push them out of jobs throughout the country! Immigration will be the deal nail on the coffin for blacks.

Upset that there are no Latino members on the newly reconstituted Prince George’s County Board of Education, some Hispanic leaders have demanded that the county devise a plan to increase the number of Hispanics considered for board appointments and county jobs.

Del. Joseline Pena-Melnyk (D-Prince George’s) said Hispanic leaders have asked Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) to create a task force to examine whether Hispanics — who make up more than 16 percent of the county’s population and about 25 percent of the school population — are properly represented in the county government and the school system. The task force also would offer recommendations on how to boost the numbers.

Scott Peterson, a spokesman for Baker, said the county executive is eager to work with the Hispanic community on the issue.

“The Baker administration, in concert with Latino leaders throughout the county, will be announcing a task force to address this issue in the upcoming weeks,” Peterson said in a statement. “County Executive Baker is committed to diversity and inclusion throughout the county government. He looks forward to working with this task force and hearing their recommendations.”
