By Shannon Sexton, PAC Chair
On behalf of PAC, we are very disappointed with the magistrates decision this morning to exclude Sunday sales in the County. The people spoke on March 22. We chose progress and opportunity. Today 4 magistrates continued to hold us back.
We want to thank Magistrates Hadley, Caldwell, Flatt and CJE Stephens for standing up for the people of the county and attempting to carry out the wishes of the majority.
We would also like to applaud the Columbia City Council for their eagerness and drive to do what is right for the people of Columbia economically. We are excited to see what's on the horizon for our city. In a few months we'll look back and say - this is what government looks like when they do what is right for the people they represent.
In regards to those county businesses that will be forced to request annexation into the city, those that will not be able to compete on Sunday and those that have now decided Adair Co. is not a location welcoming to new businesses because we lack a free and fair market - please know we worked tirelessly for you.
We will continue to work for the people of this county in the coming months and years. Holding back the will of the people is like trying to hold back the ocean - at some point the ocean will overcome the barriers holding it back if enough momentum is behind it. We aim to gain momentum.
Shannon Sexton is the chair for PAC - Progress in Adair County
