Early voting begins – vote YES on jobs!

October 13th, 2010

gathering signaturesEarly voting across Tennessee has begun! From today through October 28, voters across Cannon County have something on the ballot no other county has: a yes or no vote on real jobs.

We ask that you vote YES on jobs by allowing a distillery to open on Short Mountain. In many ways, our state’s great agricultural heritage was supported by hundreds of distilleries.

In 1840 the U.S. Census reported that Cannon County alone had 18 distilleries. Distilling spirits was a necessary way to turn grain into a medicinal and dietary staple of rural family life.

Unlike many job opportunities that come and go, we are not owned by a foreign company. We are not owned by a company in another state. We are your neighbors. We are farmers. Our families live right here, and we want every dollar to stay here and support our way of life.

We want to revive the artisan process of distilling spirits and open up our county’s rich agricultural heritage to tourists from around the world. We want to tell our story and shine our light to the world, but we can’t do it without your help and without your permission.


  • DATE: October 13 – 28 9am – 12pm | Tuesday 19th and 26th is 2pm – 6pm
