Liqour Vote????

Here in our small town of Greensburg, we will soon have the opportunity to vote on special legislation that will allow the sell of alcohol by the glass with certain limitations of only being in the historic district of town, have to serve food, seat a certain number of people, and the building has to be in original condition, blah, blah, blah. What all this boils down to is that 1 or 2 buildings in Greensburg will be available to sell alcohol.
Alot of people in our community are all in a twitter. They do not want alcohol in our town. They will not vote for it. They will not support it in any way due to their religious beliefs. I understand and respect that. However, on any given Saturday, you will find the majority of these people in other towns eating at restaurants that sell alcohol (Red Lobster, O'Charley's, Rafferty's). You may argue that they are not drinking. True. If you are spending your money in a restaurant that sells alcohol and must have food sales of at least 75% to maintain their liquor license, then you ARE contributing to the sales of alcohol. Why not do that here in Greensburg and open the door of opportunities for jobs and tourism income? Let's all be sensible and do what's right for our community. Let's support Sam and Mimi Moore! Vote YES!!!!!!!!
