Local Businesses Support Proposition 2

RECEIVED Tue., Oct. 28, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Opal Divine's, like 99% of Austin’s local businesses, has been subsidy-free since day one. We generally don’t get into political issues. We are coming out publicly in support of Proposition 2 to keep Austin out of the retail subsidy business.
    I strongly urge anyone who is unclear on Proposition 2 to visit www.stopdomainsubsidies.com and check out the videos explaining the history of this deal. There is a lot of sound-bite ad spending going on by the opposition to this proposition that isn’t telling the whole story. Voting down Proposition 2 is asking Austin voters to subsidize competition for local businesses. More than 500 local businesses have come out in favor of Proposition 2. Please help support local businesses, and vote “yes” on Proposition 2.
