Tom Burnett is a Bedford resident who says it’s time to bring liquor stores to Bedford so that the city can get more sales tax dollars. Bedford relies heavily on property tax dollars, and Burnett believes it is time to lessen the burden on homeowners. As one of the organizers of this initiative, he and his group raised $158,000 to hire Texas Petition Strategies to circulate petitions. They successfully got a number of elections passed in North Texas. In May, Grand Prairie voters approved liquor stores. He said that estimates from Texas Petition Strategies indicate that having liquor stores will add 25-40 jobs and bring in around $300,000 in sales tax revenue.
