Comptroller Peter Franchot on Montgomery County’s monopoly over retail and wholesale sales of alcohol in the Country:
Montgomery County is the last bastion of a medieval state system.
This is a system that is incredibly slanted against the consumer and the ordinary citizen.
Most people in Montgomery County go to Prince George’s County, or the District or to Virginia to buy their alcohol because it’s such a disgrace.
And these are some of the nicer things he has to say.
