True to her words, Town of Jonesboro’s District B Alderwoman Renee Stringer got busy this morning and dug up some history from the archives of The Jackson Independent. Stringer had promised at last night’s council meeting to do whatever she could to fight and keep Jonesboro from going totally “wet.”
It seems there was a local option election regarding liquor sales in Jackson Parish, including the town of Jonesboro.
See here Stringer’s comments.
I just wanted to provide to the public the following information:
Please see the results of the decision of the registered voters of Jackson Parish and how they voted their convictions. It is very obvious to me that a 10 minute trip to the Jackson Parish Library has proven that there are serious questions about how the decisions are made in the Town of Jonesboro regarding law, ordinances and everything relative to the effective day to day operations of the town.
I am not an attorney nor do I have graduate level education, but this has by far surpassed any other action to date. I hope this will put to rest the notion that Liquor is the answer to the lack of revenue we are so in need of at this point in time.
