As mayor of Brookings, much like other local leaders across the state, my focus and efforts every day involve many aspects of promoting community development. via

The liquor law in Brookings, SD is bordering illegal and should be challenged in the US Supreme Court, but no one has the guts to challenge the rich people in Brookings who own the one and only liquor store. The law clearly creates a monopoly, which is illegal. Though typical of small town 'greed' mentality of business owners - who want to get rich by offering limited consumer services, everyone needs to realize they can get 3 times more for their money in Sioux Falls liquor stores, Sams, HyVee grocery. If people don't want to change the law, fine, let it stay, but for those of us who enjoy getting more for our money, let us ALL boycott and take our hard-earned money to Sioux Falls where we can get twice as much than if we purchase locally. Same goes for the Brookings gas pricing - Brookings is known for it's gas cartel, let's all go to Volga or Lake Benton, where gas is 10-15 cents cheaper per gallon.
