We just received a letter from SMU President R. Gerald Turner to University Park Mayor Dick Davis, but, due to printing deadlines, we won’t be able to run it in this week’s edition of Park Cities People.
After previously stating that the university will not take sides regarding the two propositions, Turner wrote:
“I think it would be best for the proposed changes to be rejected to preserve the character of the community near the campus.”
In the letter, Turner claims over-the-counter alcohol sales “would encourage greater underage consumption through easier individual alcohol purchases or bulk purchases facilitated by those 2l and older.”

Pick up this week’s Park Cities People for an in-depth look at the liquor propositions, and where former UP mayors stand on the proposed changes.
