Liquor referenda approved in 3 cities

LAWRENCEVILLE -- In the wake of the opening of a liquor store in Grayson, more could soon be on the way to Gwinnett, after three cities approved local liquor laws.

On Tuesday, referenda passed in Dacula and Loganville allowing for the opening of liquor stores. In Grayson, voters expanded Sunday offerings from beer to also distilled spirits, malt beverages and wine.

The measures passed with ease.

In southern Gwinnett, where the Beverage SuperStore of Grayson opened Oct. 24 in a 15,000-square-foot Loganville Highway location, voters approved the Sunday sales measure 149 to 38.

In nearby Loganville, 548 people voted yes on the package store provision, with 252 voting no.

The percentage of the margin of victory was even higher in Dacula, even with much fewer votes. There, 181 people voted yes and 76 voted no.

With the re-election of the PSC, school board, Balfour, and Woodall, the taxpayers will need all the alcohol they can get quickly. Personally, I can afford outrageous power bills (we will have to pay for Vogtle soon enough), higher property taxes, and the litany of additional taxes implemented by the Gormandizing Gestapo. I hope you can afford them, too.
