The group against bringing alcohol sales to Tyler and Smith County Precinct 2 is calling out their opponents on what they call false statistics and biased information.
If passed, the votes would allow beer and wine sales in Tyler, Flint, Bullard, and Noonday.
It is a controversial issue that has had two sides debating for months and now that elections are around the corner, it is getting even more heated.
Back in September, the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce hired Doctor Ray Perryman to determine the economic impact beer and wine sales could have in Tyler and Smith County Precinct two.
"The impact of this new election would create about 1,600 jobs in the local area and around $4.9 million in annual tax revenue," Dr. Perryman said.
Those are numbers Doctor Mike Daniels who heads up the opposition group does not believe.
"I wonder why President Obama hasn't called these people to find out how he could get the jobs up. Do you know what he could tell America? All you got to do is sell more alcohol and all the jobs are gonna come. Look how much is gonna come," Dr. Daniels said.
