Petition Drive to Improve Garvin County Economy

The citizens of Garvin County, Oklahoma have launched a petition drive in an effort to allow liquor by the drink.

A group called Citizens for Economic Development is working to get 1,425 signatures on petitions to get the proposal on the November 7 election ballot.

Chairman Glenn Prater said the drive is because the county and Pauls Valley have no image. - KOCO News

Like many Oklahoma communities, Garvin county has recognized the negative economic impact of their dry county status. I hope they are successful in their efforts to improve the business climate in Paul's Valley and the rest of Garvin county.
