New city of Frederick logo sparks backlash


The city of Frederick unveiled its logo over the past month and a half. When the city posted it to its Facebook page July 2, backlash was swift.

Commenters described the logo as looking like a wounded duck or something their children did in kindergarten. Others questioned the money the new design cost and why the city chose an out-of-state firm.

New-Post reporter Jeremy Arias joins Frederick Uncut producer Heather Mongilio in the studio to talk about the new logo, the backlash and steps moving forward.

Then Frederick Alderman Roger Wilson speaks with Mongilio about the process and lack of public input into the new logo.

Later in the episode, Mongilio speaks with Go Team Therapy Dogs handlers about bringing their trained therapy dogs to the Frederick County Courthouse.
