As Bar Owners Protest Outside Governor’s Mansion, NC House Leader Calls on Governor to Let Them Reopen Safely

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     As North Carolina bar owners gather outside the Governor's Mansion today to once again protest his decision to exclude bars from the state's reopening plan, state House Majority Leader John Bell (R - Wayne) sent a letter to Governor Cooper pleading with him to acknowledge their concerns and find a way for bars to reopen in a safe manner - just like restaurants, breweries and wineries.

    "Much like the rest of the country, North Carolinians are struggling during these unprecedented times," the letter states. "We have seen businesses that were once staples in our communities forced to close down. We have seen thousands of hardworking North Carolinians lose their jobs. This economic shutdown has impacted us all, but today I am contacting you regarding the disproportionate and unfair treatment that many bar owners have faced."

    "I join thousands of bar owners and employees who are pleading with you to let them get back to work. You are preventing hard working North Carolinians from earning a living. I urge you to listen to the concerns of bar owners, allow these businesses to safely reopen, and let North Carolina get back to work."

    The full letter can be found online HERE.
