Voters Again Approve Mixed Drink Sales

Posted: Updated:

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) - Voters in Pigeon Forge have again approved liquor by the drink. This time, the margin was 154 votes.

The Mountain Press reported Ken Maples, who led the pro-liquor initiative, said the election Thursday validated the choice voters initially made on November 6.

Results of that referendum were thrown out by a court over confusion about who was allowed to vote. The question was on a crowded general election ballot, headed by the presidential race.

Jess Davis, who is co-chairman of Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge, said his group was disappointed in the outcome and might contest the results.

The Sevier County Election Commission meets March 21 to certify the vote.
