Alcohol Petition Circulates Around Lufkin

A student who started a petition just last week for the sale of alcohol in Lufkin has already gotten hundreds of signatures.

Close to 400 people have signed Shawn Breaux's petition. He still has to get thousands more signatures before there's a wet/dry election in Lufkin.

Breaux believes selling alcohol would provide a big boost to the economy. He needs to collect 3,300 signatures from registered Angelina County voters for the petition to pass.
