Keep it Local Petition Dropped
By Paco Long-Mendez
Murray, KY – The Keep it Local campaign to bring package alcohol sales to the city of Murray is halting petition efforts. Organization co-chair Boone Chambers says although the measure has gained widespread support, the time isn't right to move the issue to a vote. An opposition group, Keep It Out of Murray has also been circulating their own petition against increased alcohol sales. Chambers says stopping the campaign is a compromise between the two organizations. Keep It Out of Murray also plans to back off their petition drive.
