Group forms to oppose alcohol sales in Precinct 4

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

SMITH COUNTY, TX - This past February, County Commissioners called an option election for the legal sale of alcohol in Justice of the Peace Precinct 4. Now, a group has been formed to oppose the sale of alcohol in Precinct 4.

Anwar Khalifa, Tony Watson, Jim Haire, Norman Cagle and Paul Dennis are forming Keep Precinct 4 Dry specific-purpose committee to oppose the sale of beer, wine and all alcoholic beverages for off premises consumption.

The two potential ballot items in the May 9th election are for "the legal sale of mixed beverages in restaurants by food and beverage certificate holders only," and "the legal sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption only." The items will only be voted on by the residents of J.P. Precinct 4.

Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 includes parts of Tyler, Winona, New Chapel Hill and Overton, and spans the north-east corner of Smith County.
