On Tuesday, March 8, 1983, you will be faced with
a very important issue. At this time you will be asked
to choose whether or not to permit the opening of an
ABC Store in the Town of Winfall.
With all due respect to your personal feelings, we
would like to provide you with some sound reasons for
supporting this issue for the betterment of this commun

referendum would be increased revenue for the Town of
Winfall. Whereas Winfall already receives revenues from
the sale of beer and wine this referendum does not cre

Additional revenues could feasibly be used to begin
and support an already planned police department for the
town, as well as helping to insure NO MAJOR TAX INCREASE
for town residents.
By placing an ABC Store within the town limits,
you, the citizens of Winfall, would be able to control
issues that may arise in future dealings with ABC Laws,
instead of a county-rwide majority control.

As with any new business, an ABC Store would cre
ate new job opportunities for local residents.
We ask you to carefully consider these facts and
vote YES on March 8 for the placement of an ABC Store
in the Town of Winfall.
