It’s Time to Put in Some Work

Update:Email address links fixed. Sorry for the syntax error.

Steffens over at LWC has made his case for wine to be sold in Grocery stores. I couldn’t agree with him more.

Today, Red, White, and Food, an organization supporting the effort, put out a list of Senators and Representatives, and their position on the matter.

Memphis has an opportunity to make a big difference on this matter. With 21 Representatives and Senators out of 132, that’s 16% of the entire legislature. Below is a list of Shelby County legislators ordered by their support, or lack thereof. If your legislator supports the measure, send them an email thanking them. If your legislator is either opposed, or has not announced their position, head over to the Red, White and Food media center and get educated, then write your legislator.

This is simple stuff. If beer is ok in grocery stores, why not wine?
