We do not need more access to alcohol. We need less. Do we need more tobacco shops, more meth, more prescription drugs? We have far too much of all right now. Wake up Warren county .

ABSOLUTELY!!! Every county touching Warren County has packaged liquor. The notion that you are keeping it out by not having a store is ridiculous and plain foolish. The only thing you are keeping out of this county is the revenue. More homes have some form of liquor in their home than do not. Wake up to that fact...

When are we going to realize that alcohol is not the answer? We voted in liquor-by-the-drink and were promised more revenue and more restaurants. Yet budgets are still tight and all we've gotten was a couple non-alcoholic restaurants and some bar-fights at Applebee's. The revenue argument just doesn't hold up. I would much rather see a vote come up to take liquor by drink back out of McMinnville since it has not lived up to its promises. That is the sad fact of these votes, once it gets in, it stays in. But if it's voted down it keeps being brought up again and again. Moral and religious arguments aside, look at it from a business prospective and see that it has not help. Neither will liquor stores. McMinnville and Warren County can come up with better ways to raise revenue.

Use for taxes instead of surrounding counties getting all the benifits
