Local group files to oppose beer, wine being sold in Tyler

A local group has filed to oppose the group wanting to bring beer and wine to Tyler/JP Pct. 2.

The group named "Stand Strong for Tyler" filed paperwork last week with the Smith County Elections Office.

Paperwork was filed by Dr. Michael Daniels who is the pastor of the Landmark Baptist Church in Tyler. That is also where the address is listed for "Stay Strong for Tyler."

Meanwhile, the petition movement for alcohol in Tyler and JP Precinct 2 through the group called "Buy Local First" is moving along smoothly, according to spokesperson Laura Krantz. She said they hope to turn in signatures ahead of the June 25 deadline.
