Local activists have formed the Buy Local First Special Purpose Political Action Committee in support of limited alcohol sales in Tyler and Smith County Justice Precinct 2.

The PAC will ask voters to sign petitions calling for an election to allow:

  • "the legal sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption only"
  • "the legal sale of mixed beverages in restaurants by food and beverage certificate holders only"

The PAC is working on its petition and it will be available for supportive voters to sign in a couple of weeks. To learn more about the organization and to find locations of the petition, visit its website.

Allowing the sale of these beverages in restaurants but not in stores is hypocritical.
