Vote YES Today

Ponca City Now - June 28, 2016 8:48 am

This election day, all voters in Kay County will be given the opportunity to level the playing field for the restaurants in Kay County .

As it stands now, restaurants in Kay County are prohibited from serving liquor on Sunday for on-premise consumption. Counties surrounding us do not have this same law, and that puts our restaurants at an unfair disadvantage 52 days per year.

I see this as an economic issue and not a moral issue. What if there is a law in place prohibiting Kay County restaurants from serving dessert on Sunday while surrounding counties could? I think that would not be fair and that our restaurants would be at an unfair disadvantage. This is the case with the current law for consumption of alcohol in restaurants.

A yes vote for the proposition will let Kay County restaurants compete on an equal playing field with the surrounding counties and keep more dollars in our county.

Let’s join our other fellow Oklahomans in other counties who have decided to modernize the laws and keep more dollars within their counties.

Vote Yes Tuesday for the proposition to allow liquor sales in restaurants on Sundays in Kay County .

Regardless of your party affiliation, if you are a resident of Kay County you will be allowed to vote on this county-wide proposition.

I urge you to vote YES June 28 on this economic issue

— Bill Coleman
