Some State Senator Wants to Know

Thomas F. O’Mara, a New York State Senator from mid-western New York, has posted a poll on his website. He’s asking, presumably, his voters to tell him whether they’d like to have wine on supermarket shelves.

This has been an ongoing point of contention and law in New York. Currently only single-proprietor shops are allowed to sell wine and liquor. Beer is sold in beverage shops, supermarkets and convenience stores. Not surprisingly, current liquor stores are adamantly against this. Supermarkets would love it, the state would love it for what it sees as more licensing fees and tax revenues.

Give Mr. O’Mara your opinion. Wine shops and supermarkets co-exist right next store in New Jersey, why not here?

UPDATE: the poll has been taken down. The senator’s views on the topic remain.
