Earlier this year legislation which would have benefited breweries died as a direct result of Tim Kent and the actions of the NC Beer & Wine Wholesalers. You may even remember my post about it at the time. At the time I did a little background research on Mr. Kent and most of what I found I didn’t like.
One thing that really bugs me is his voter record. It only shows he has voted twice and both times based on a Pinehurst address, yet he supposedly works in Raleigh. IIRC when I did a real estate search the house is owned by someone else.
For now I’m letting a sleeping dog lie, but at some point when Mr. Kent rears his head in opposition to a bill which would benefit the beer industry as a whole I am going to let the cat out of the bag.
