As the guy who filed the first lawsuit, I can provide researchers, citizens, taxpayers, lawyers, journalists and other curiosity seekers the reasons and details, if need be.

If after these lawsuits the Combine taxpayers don't get control over their city council and that police department, they will keep having the same problems.

Note: I filed my suit in July of 2010

The problem is....the people that drink are gonna go buy alcohol where ever they can and when they run out and are drunk they get in their car and have to drive a ways to get it instead of just going to the corner store in town. Your not going to keep people from buying alcohol, so we might as well limit the drunks on the road and financially benefit with local beer and wine sales

Apparently Ed never lived in Garland.Seagoville is quiter ,alot less crime and people aren't hanging out everwhere all hours of the don't hear guns going off all hours of the night and apart from the 'hood' down the road the road ,you don't illegal aliens the downtown area,it's peaceful and quiet and no comparison to garland whatsoever.garland's nothing but hood rats and illegal mexicans. seagoville hasn't arrived there yet.but legalize liquor and add dart transit and you'll see garland materialize before your very eyes.this won't happen for a while many smart people in seagoville voting dry and keeping dart out of the area

i just broke up with a man i had been seeing who lives in seagoville -- i went out there to meet him for dinner and when i found out that there was nowhere to so much as get beer or a wine cooler, it was a complete turn-off -- seems to me like seagoville has some much bigger issues with which to content rather than worrying about alcohol -- people will travel to get their alcohol, without a doubt -- but i'd work on the town getting its own school district, attracting nice stores and restaurants, and making seagoville a desireable place to live rather than a haven for rednecks --

I think Seagoville should be wet. It would only be right for our cops and fire fighters. With all the revenue we could pay them in decent amounts. I think the old hardware store would make a bad ass honky tonk!!!

it's the building of clubs or bars that would create problems in seagoville.people will take their alcohol home to drink it,which they've been doing for years anyway.but clubs or bars being opened here in seagoville would quickly alter the quiet,serene environment here.right now for example,very few people hang out between the hours of 10pm and open bars or clubs here and there will be scpres of people hangin out all hours of the night,which seagoville really doesn't need imo//walmart can sell liquor without the city leaning towrd more crime.but place even one bar or club here and watch the city go downhill.yes,balch springs is a good example.FYI:walmart employees have told me that most of the peoople that shop there are from balch springs and pleasant grove,due to the walmarts in both those cities becoming so overly packed at any given they drive here to shop.if a club or bar is built here in seagoville just guess who'll take advantage of those places once they're attention has been drawn to guessed it..the grove and balch springs.we don't need it here in employees also tld me that every time they'vce caught anyone stealing from their store,the perp was from pleasant grove or another part of dallas,but usually pleasant's for the better if seagoville continues to refuse to contract with dart.good god..we will see an end to our city otherwise//i've seen up close and personal how that changes an area.

Seagoville should go wet!!!! There are crack heads n Lil crime here anyways... It could also benefit from the extra income of taxes there is alot of bad streets maybe this extra money can get then fixed... Kaufman sells liquor and beer and there is not a high crime rate there nor is it a bad place to live... Maybe if seagoville gets wet the drunk ppl won't have far to go and minimize the chance of running some innocent person over when they have to go 15 miles to get a drink.... I live in seagoville and I personally think that going wet could not make seagoville any worse than it is.. Ppl of seagoville need to worry more about these poor schools we have they really suck and apparently they hire any crack head that had a online teaching degree

I am from Seagoville, Harold Magill Ciyt Council Place #1, I have voted early and have voted no on going wet.
Some council people can only see the tax revenue as a reason to go wet. Yes all cities could use more revenue but I believe there are other sources to tap besides turning Seagoville into Beer and wine stores.
Re-elect Harold Magill Seagoville City Council Place #1.
Every single one of you in seagoville are greedy whores that is why old seagoville still looks like trash. You want to fix something fix your crooked police department . I know they bring in enough to fix seagoville with there nice luxury vehicles. Beer/liq will do nothing but rack in money for these greedy ppl

I live in Seagoville and am seeing it turn into a city that caters to illegal aliens and pleasant grove hood rats-What I also see happening is white flight.White people moving from Seagoville as they observe the change occurring.In a year's time or less,seagoville will be dominantly Hispanic and black..and there ya go..another Garland,like another poster said.I've already noticed that while most of the white people of Seagoville are at home asleep on weeknights,the hispanics are out and about at all hours.I don't understand why mexicans are out and about all hours,as imo it's suspicious/.They're walking the effing streets at 1and 2am and hanging out in Walmart,many with their little kids.I don't know if anyone else living in seagoville has noticed but the Walmart now looks like the Walmart in garland inside any time night or day.It looks like a third world country.This Walmart didn't give that impression even a year ago.I don't know what happened but it looks to me like pleasant grove and balch spring hood rats be moving in.A sad thing for Seagoville.I'm moving to Missouri soon to a city that's as large as Garland but less than 3% hispanic and only 11% black and the rest is all white!! I'm outta here soon..Let the mexicans and the blacks have Seagoville,cause they'll just turn it into a third world class town.high crime,punks roaming the neighborhoods all hours of the night.The Jack In The Box has already gone that route,as when they take your order,generally what you hear is jibberish over the speaker as the workers can't seem to speak english well at all//If this is what Seagoville residents want then when the city goes downhill ( partly for the reason that so many in this town wanna see diversity) then i'll just laugh in people's faces when the local paper begins reporting crime and drug deals,etc and i'll say well hell,you asked for it.

Seagoville is nowhere near as bad as garland yet.seagoville according to even recent stats is much lower in crime than garland ever dreams of being and definitely doesn't have the minority stats.anyone who claims that Seagoville is worse than garland obviously has no knowledge of the differences in the two cities.while every 24 hour diner in garland is catering to drugeez and punks with nothing to do between midnight and 6am,seagoville has only a dennys and what you see in there at 2am on a weeknight is either older locals or a few people in and out on their way to or from Crandall or kaufman.a far cry from the kind of sh*t garland,dallas and mesquite diners collect in the middle of the trust me,seagoville is nowhere near the same as the crappy ghetto towns of garland,pleasant grove,mesquite,etc etc./on a typical dinner rush in Seagoville dennys ,what shows up are decent white folk and families who aren't displaying ghetto language and actions like you see going on in restaurants in the other cities I mentioned.
