Makes sense. McAdenville's downtown has lots of potential - but it'll never thrive like other downtowns as long as it's dry. Just look at what's happened in downtown Belmont since its referendum in the late 90's, or more recently, in Cramerton just in the last 4 years. Show me one dry downtown that's got anything going for it. A vote against this is a vote for staying poor.

Vote for staying poor? Who is going to get rich? Not the citizens of McAdenville!

Mcadenville? Looks like they bulldozed the poor right out of there. Those don,t look like mill employees houses to me. Looks like they could walk to the liquor store.
