Sunday sales should be voted on in Nov.

If Forsyth County is going to ask residents to vote on the SPLOST in November, I hope the question of allowing Sunday alcohol sales will be on the ballot too. This would help to increase voter turnout and give the citizens the opportunity to decide whether or not we want to lift the antiquated prohibition on selling alcohol on Sundays.

Not only will this allow the people to vote on an issue important to our community’s way of life, it has the potential to add much-needed tax revenue.

Alpharetta and other nearby cities will be putting the question to their voters in November, and I hope Cumming and Forsyth County will be similarly progressive.
