Happy Lunar New Year, Now Change Your Signs

Queens-Politics received an email in regards to a questionnaire addressed to all elected officials in New York.

The letter was sent from James Trikas, who also volunteers as the Vice President of the East Flushing Civic Association.

The matter is in regards to a movement to have the English language displayed larger than any other language.

Is the movement gaining momentum? What do you think?

James Trikas. January 10, 2012

To: All Elected Officials in New York.

1) Do you support to have our Primary English Language recognized as New York’sOfficial Language for Government use?

2) Do you support to have our Primary English Language at least 60% required inEnglish to be displayed on Business Information signs (Store signs)? Currently required in English but not enforced.

3) In ESL English as the Second language. Do you support to change Second to EPL, EOL or EUL. English as the Primary or Official or Universal language. English must be larger than any foreign language displayed. Not equal 50 / 50  and not burden new businesses if existing businesses causing the problem not required to comply there are many reasons to acknowledged our primary language and has been our language for hundreds of years.

English must be larger than any foreign language displayed. Not equal 50 / 50 and not burden new businesses if existing businesses causing the problem not required to comply there are many reasons to acknowledged our primary language and has been our language for hundreds of years.

Otherwise all foreign languages will be considered equal to English to reduce its importance that has been taught in NY schools as our primary language and the Universal language of many countries. Diminishing its value in NY and the US may leave deep resentment from Citizens and Immigrants toward those elected Officials do to they had to learn English to live, work or school here.

To change the look of communities to appear like foreign countries with Predominate foreign character letter signs that segregates communities to reduce or eliminate the display of our primary English language lettering is wrong.

Businesses in New York and the United States of America must realized it alienates Communities. Do you support that our Primary English language must be displayed. Should be displayed larger than any foreign second language in NY or the U.S.A.Repercussion – No justification to Teach, Test, Acknowledge or Require English taught in School or on any document if it’s not our primary language.

See Petition: 31 States plus 4 proposed states pending 2011, 70% of U.S. States have or will have English as their Official language. Congress and Senate must legislate English as the official language.
