On the eve of statewide elections, members of the Bellingham Board of Selectmen made public their individual positions on ballot question 1 last night. The initiative, if passed, would allow more food stores to sell wine.
The board did not vote or take a public stand on the issue at last night's meeting, but Chairman Jerald Mayhew and selectmen Ann Odabashian and Skip Goodnow said they oppose the ballot question. Selectman Ronald Picard, who has said in interviews that he is in favor of Question 1, was absent.
