By Shannon Sexton, CHair PAC

On behalf of Progress in Adair County (PAC), we are pleased with the ruling passed down by Judge Vance this evening. We've always been confident in our efforts to end prohibition in Adair County and we had total confidence in the petition and election process.

The people of Adair County spoke loud and clear on Election Day - todays ruling simply turned up the volume and removed any uncertainty. We will continue to do what we've always done - push for progress. It's happening all around us already. We are proud to be a part of it and excited to see what the future holds. - Shannon Sexton Shannon Sexton - PAC Chair
