Another Liquor Petition Circulating

by Jessica Cervantez

Another wet-dry petition is circulating around Angelina County.

You will spot the petition officials sporting yellow t-shirts at places like the Angelina County sub-courthouse. Already they have received 2-thousand signatures, and need 7-thousand total by June 20th. This is all in an effort to get a special election to vote on the county being able to serve alcohol.

Oscar Dillahunty, who heads the petition, said that Angelina County is losing a lot of money by not selling alcohol.

On Saturday, KTRE interviewed a signature collector at one of the polling places. That person named three local businesses as being supporters of the petition. Dillahunty says the person interviewed spoke out of turn and was not knowledgeable enough to make a comment. The list of supporters will not be made available until October.
