Lufkin Student Is Still Taking Names

A college student who started a petition for the sale of alcohol in Lufkin has now gotten thousands of signatures.

Shawn Breaux has collected 2,654 signatures over the past few weeks. He only has about 700 more to go before there would be a wet/dry election in Lufkin.

Breaux believes selling alcohol would provide a big boost to the economy. He has until December 26th to collect 3,300 signatures from registered Angelina County voters for the petition to pass.
