Letter: Keep ballots in English for US citizens only
0903 At-Large Voting

I agree completely with Larry E. Fast: Ballots should be in English. When my family came here from Italy, they had to learn the language; no one catered to anyone. If you want to come to the USA, that’s fine, but come in legally through the front door, learn the language, become a citizen and pay taxes. 

The same goes with the “Dreamer” children, as they are called. To the young woman from Kennesaw who said she feels like a citizen: Become one!
