Writer wants information on switching wet-to-dry

Comments re article 70108 WetDry Petition turned in at 315pmCT 30 Sep 2014

Ed Pipalski writes:
Just a point of order: As described in the article, the "wet vote" supporters can repeatedly attempt to bring alcohol into a dry territory by forcing a vote on the matter every three-years until finally successful in their endeavor; is the inverse not also true, once a territory goes "wet/moist" those opposed can repeatedly attempt to have alcohol permit licensing repealed and return to a dry territory? Reminds me of an old saying, "the lawless need ever be always perfect in crime; the lawman, no matter how aloof, need only be successful once to imprison the former. Twenty-five years of perfection in a life of crime versus a twenty-five year mediocre career as a lawman redeemed with a big-case crime being solved- the choice is yours young man." --Ed Pipalski
Thanks: This is a question we'd refer to a lawyer or a county clerk. (Adair County Clerk Joyce Rogers has become quite knowledgeable on the subject.) Throughout the time of the petition, signers were repeatedly heard to saw they would like to see the sale of alcohol be done under legal supervision, but if didn't work out they would be the first to sign a petition for a repeal. - EW
