Lack of Opposition or Ignorance?

According to the American Journal (did I mention there's no link?), folks from the state's Liquor Licensing and Compliance Division and the Attorney General's office were at the Westbrook Public Safety Building last Monday for a public hearing devoted to the question of whether the State of Maine should overturn the Westbrook City Council's decisions to deny the Skybox Bar and Grill's requests for liquor licenses in March and August. And, according to the American Journal, "[n]o one from the public attended the hearing."

Which sparks a couple questions: Is opposition to a Brown Street bar among Brown Streeters overstated? Or did people just not know about the meeting?
