Vote no on Initiative 1183 | Letter

Why do we need to get the state out of the liquor business? Why does Costco need to get into the business (other than profit)?

Why do we need to get the state out of the liquor business? Why does Costco need to get into the business (other than profit)?

Whether this is increasing the number of liquor outlets or simply redistributing the licensing, why is this something that needs to be done?

It’s like selling white elephant repellent.

Apparently, I’m not supposed to be asking or expecting the answers to these questions.  Or expecting answers from an unbiased source from either side of the issue. I should just flip the (thinking) off switch and vote yes. I don’t need white elephant repellent and I fail to see what is lost or gained by changing things. I see a yes vote as a vote of ignorance. Costco, you need revenue? Go fish.
