May 19, 2015: Spirits are high in Bellevue and Wilkinsburg, where voters today are deciding whether their communities should allow liquor sales.
If exit interviews with voters are any indication, it may end up 50-50.
“I just think it’s time to change an 82-year-old law that should have gone out with Prohibition,” said Joe Kachmar, 61, of Bellevue, after he voted this afternoon.
“I think it’s going to pass,” he continued. “I think people want to try something new because the old ways aren’t working.”
