Quitman - Business at Quitman's Steak and Seafood Grill is good, but owner Suellen Dell says one thing could make it even better. "People still go to Valdosta because they would rather have a drink than they would wine or beer," said Dell.
People who dine here now can have a glass of wine or beer with their meal, but liquor is off limits. Dell is hoping Quitman voters will change that Tuesday. "This is the first step in helping this economy grow and bringing business back and bringing people here to see what Quitman is about," said Dell.
The sign on the door of Steak and Seafood Grill urges people to vote yes on the liquor referendum. But other people around town are handing out flyers asking voters to vote no. "I'm afraid all its going to do is bring a lot of crime," said Ann Ring.
If the referendum is passed, Ann Ring and Doris Renfroe say restaurants that choose to serve liquor will lose their business. "I will not accommodate the restaurants in Quitman if they sell liquor because I don't approve of it," said Renfroe.
"It's just going to cause trouble," said Ring.
But Dell says this isn't a moral issue. "It's definitely an economic issue," said Dell.
And its an issue that's now in the hands of the voters.
