I’ve written before that I live in an area of the state (and I’m sure multiple areas like mine exist) where the buying and consumption of alcohol is looked upon as buying a hooker. Ok, maybe not that bad, but generally looked down upon by those of the Baptist denomination. My county commissioner hasn’t indicated if she will place the issue to the voters, but there are a few areas in Northwest Georgia that will be offering up Sunday Sales as an option to voters.
A few of these municipalities and counties will be holding the referendum vote this year…an off-year election. I expect it’ll pass in a lot of places, but I expect it will not pass in some of the more “hard core” social conservative areas. My question is, will voters be willing to punch the button for Sunday Sales in order to capture tax revenue that is flowing to other states?
Come Election Day in November, we’ll see which side will win out.
