The ad war is on for Initiative 1183, to privatize the sale of liquor. The latest entry by the “no” side has the “yes” side claiming that it is false. The ad, here, shows Alice Dietz, owner of The Brits, a cafe in Longview. She says:

As a small restaurant owner, I looked into the facts of Initiative 1183, and I don’t like what I see. The big corporations behind 1183 say it increases funding for government programs. But they don’t pay for it out of their corporate profits. Instead, you and I pay with a brand-new 27 percent tax. In this economy, I’m just trying to keep my doors open for my employees and my customers. The last thing we need is higher taxes. I’m voting no on 1183.
