Red White and Food Members,
January 2013 marks the beginning of a new Tennessee General Assembly and an opportunity to renew the push for the sale of wine in retail food stores.
On Thursday, Aug. 2, registered voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for state primary and county general elections. Your participation in the election process is very important – the 2012 state legislative elections will determine whether we can pass legislation in 2013 that will finally allow Tennesseans to purchase wine where they shop for food.
1) Cast your vote on Aug. 2 (or during early voting, which ends on July 28).
2) Prior to the Nov. 6 general election, get to know the legislative candidates in your district and find out if
they support the sale of wine in retail food stores. Attend events in your community, ask questions and
3) Share what you learn about the candidates. Use Red White & Food’s Facebook and Twitter pages
to tell us (and your fellow RWF members) where candidates stand, and start the conversation for
change in 2013.
We’re not giving up the fight to rewrite Tennessee’s archaic liquor laws. Get out and vote.
Thanks for your support,
The Red White & Food Team
