Not Enough Signatures on Alcohol Petition

Lufkin will be staying dry, at least for another year.

Shawn Breaux, an18-year-old Lufkin resident, was trying to collect enough signatures to force a wet/dry election in Angelina County. He needed to get more than 3300 signatures from registered voters. Even if all the signatures were legitimate, Breaux still didn't have enough. Only 2,256 of those signatures could be verified.

Now, a year has to pass before another alcohol petition can circulate in Precinct 1.
