Over 40,000 Signatures Collected to Axe the Drink Tax

Thanks to everyone who helped gather signatures and spread the word about the Whiskey Rebellion II to “AXE THE DRINK TAX!” Because of you, we succeeded in collecting over twice the amount of signatures we needed – 23,006 – to get our Drink Tax referendum on the November Ballot. The effort is the biggest petition drive in the history of Allegheny County!

Some of our great staff – servers from local restaurants – personally delivered all of the petitions to Allegheny County governement yesterday. Check out some of the news coverage below:
