As the Latino population grows in Ohio, so has interest by the Justice Department about whether election ballots should be bilingual. Washington is leaning on Cuyahoga County to become the first in the state to provide bilingual ballots. Also, there's acrimony in Akron over city deficit estimates and the need for more layoffs; a Cuyahoga County official resigns over a conflict of interest. And, now that the Plain Dealer and the Cleveland Orchestra have prevailed in the lawsuit brought by music critic Don Rosenberg, we'll assess the outcome and its implications. David Molpus hosts the Reporters' Roundtable, Friday morning at 9 on 90.3.

I am sure you will not print this- you spent 15 minutes justifying spanish speaking ballots and the justice dept house of cards case:
you did not mention what everyone was thinking - this is a naked political power grab for democrats to get hispanic votes, including illegal immigrants.
"Cuyahoga County to become the first in the state to provide bilingual ballots”
It is sad that WCPN did not represent all sides of the issue. We are Polish and would love to have our language on the ballot. Why just the Spanish? Why can’t they ask and learn to spell who the names are before they go in to vote.
