Pro liquor forces outspending cons as vote nears in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — Proponents of liquor by the drink in Pigeon Forge are vastly outspending a group trying to defeat the issue as it comes back for another vote.

The Mountain Press (http://bit.ly/13Vud7j ) reported proponent group Forging Ahead filed documents showing it had received nearly $27,000 between Jan. 1 and Feb. 26.

Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge reported it had about $3,400 in donations.

Voters narrowly approved a liquor referendum in November, but it was overturned after complaints that people who live outside the city were allowed to vote.

On Thursday, Pigeon Forge voters will again choose whether to allow restaurant liquor sales.
