PAC - Progress in Adair County - is closing in on the magic number of 1039 valid signatures to secure a Wet-Dry Election in Adair County, according to PAC chair Shannon Sexton.

The group had, at 11:36amCT, Tue 12 Jan 2016 800 names which have been validated at PAC headquarters.

During the first few days of January, PAC reviewers have cross checked every signature turned in, and has sent letters to those whose signatures did not meet every qualification, in hopes that the 239 signatures yet needed will be found among those already turned in.

Sexton said that PAC hopes to have the signatures ready to turn in to Adair County Court Clerk Lisa Greer by the January 23, 2016, and said the group is putting on a big push to meet that goal.

The group is hoping for the special Wet-Dry election to take place before this year's primary election, which is 17 May 2016 (first Tuesdayafter third Monday in May). Clerk Lisa Greer said that is possible if the submission of the signatures is presented in time.

PAC's office is at 808 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY, open this week 7:30am - 6pmCT Monday-Friday and Saturdays from 8am-12pmNoon.

If there is an official "Dry" opposition, we have not learned of it yet.
