Update from Senate District 10
Lower Makefield Township Ballot Referendum
Sen. Santarsiero with Rep. Perry Warren and Jim McCaffrey explaining the process required
for the ballet referendum in Lower Makefield Township.
I was joined by state Representative Perry Warren (D-31) and Jim McCaffrey, of McCaffrey's Food Markets, at Delorenzo's Tomato Pies in Yardley for a press conference on the referendum that is expected to be on the ballot during the next election in Lower Makefield Township, which would give residents the opportunity to vote to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in LMT. Currently, LMT is the only municipality in Bucks County that operates as a dry municipality.
This is about giving the people of Lower Makefield a choice. Whether the referendum passes or not, that decision should be made by the residents. That’s what this referendum is all about.
To view the full press conference, visit my district newsroom. You can also visit www.YourTownYourChoice.com for more information.
