The Vote

Yesterday the election results showed us that the voters of Arlington were tired of driving to East Chase Parkway to by a bottle of whiskey.  The citizens of Arlington are just as grown up and responsible as the citizens of Pantego, Dalworthington Gardens and Ft. Worth.  The vote was 70% to 30% in favor of alcohol sales in Arlington. 

Of course there are concerns about the placement of package sales stores in and around our city.  I can assure you that the city is looking at restrictions that will be beneficial to the community concerning the location of these establishments.  Restrictions near hospitals, churches, schools, and other medical facilities will all be considered.  Blue Laws will remain in affect, and children will not be allowed on the premises. In total I believe that this will be beneficial to the citizens of Arlington, the City of Arlington and the Texas Rangers.
