NewsChannel 11 obtains copies of alcohol protests

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -  NewsChannel 11 broke the story that alcohol sales inside Lubbock city limits could be delayed by two protests.  

We can now show you the protest documents from an open records request. The first protest is a one-page document filed by Don Workman. It simply says supporters of alcohol sales failed to consider a 2008 attorney general opinion.

The second protest references that same opinion, but in much greater detail. The more detailed protest comes from Lauren Collins. Just as NewsChannel 11 sources said, and we reported last week, Collins claims, "A county-wide election cannot change 'wet' or 'dry' status of a precinct or city located within the county where the status was established by a prior local option election."
