Swamplot’s sponsor today is the Houston Heights Beverage Coalition, a political action committee supporting the passage of the November 8th ballot proposition to legalize the sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption in the Heights.
Swamplot is nonpartisan and does not endorse political candidates or campaigns. But we do run political advertising and Sponsor of the Day content.
The photo above shows just a few supporters of Proposition 1 (from left to right): Council Member Jack Christie, Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Ellen Cohen, Houston Heights Beverage Coalition Chair Steve Reilley, Council Member David Robinson, and Houston H-E-B President Scott McLelland. More supporters appear in an expanded version of the photo, which you can find at the top of the main page of the the Houston Heights Beverage Coalition website.
On that website you’ll also find links to recent news reports about the Heights Beer-Wine Proposition; a map showing the boundaries of the Heights’ “dry zone”; and an FAQ that summarizes the history of the Heights’ alcohol restrictions and explains who’s behind the effort to get them changed.
The Houston Heights Beverage Coalition encourages Heights residents to vote “For” the Heights Beer-Wine Proposition. Election day is November 8th; early voting begins today.
And here’s a special notice for straight-ticket voters: If you vote Straight Party Ticket, you will not have voted on the Heights Beer-Wine Proposition (or any other propositions that appear on your ballot). So be sure to finish the ballot by finding the Heights Beer-Wine Proposition and voting on it separately.
