VERONA — Government reform, congressional redistricting and liquor privatization were chief among Del. Dickie Bell’s concerns as he addressed constituents at a town hall meeting Thursday in Verona.
“I believe smaller government is better,” he said. “There are plenty of places we can make changes. It’s not just about making government smaller … but about making it better.”
Bell admitted his opposition to liquor sales privatization is a departure from that stance. He said he believes ABC stores provide needed state revenue and are less prone to crime than private liquor stores might be.
