Initiative supports family-owned small businesses and customer convenience without sacrificing safety
Representative Brad Jones has announced his support for the approval of Question 3 on November’s ballot. The question will update Massachusetts’ liquor laws to enhance consumer convenience while protecting small businesses.
A yes vote on Question 3 would modernize state laws to allow for the safe expansion of alcohol licenses, allow valid out-of-state IDs to be relied upon by a retailer of alcohol beverages, and provide best practice fixes to the current system to prevent illegal sales.
“We thank Representative Jones for voicing his support for Question 3,” said Rob Mellion of the 21st Century Alcohol Retail Reform Committee. “A yes vote on Question 3 provides for the changes that family-owned alcohol retail stores need to fairly compete with large corporations that are mostly headquartered outside of Massachusetts while also benefitting adult consumers.”
Jones represents the 20th Middlesex district, which includes Lynnfield, parts of Middleton, North Reading, and parts of Reading.
