There are only four counties out of the 100 counties in our state with no ABC stores. This suggests that these fiefdoms of local boards, ABC police officers and retirement plans for all are costing taxpayers and consumers an unjustifiable fortune.
Our state can benefit significantly from privately owned stores that provide reasonable prices to consumers as they increase revenues to the state's general fund by elimination of local fiefdoms, special police and tax-supported pensions.
