Bowling Green, Kentucky (WBKO) – A petition is circulating in the county to add a wet/dry issue to the Allen County primary. They are available at many local businesses and online.
The last time the issue was put on the ballot was in 2017, when voters chose to ban alcohol in the county. Since then, local business owners have seen Allen residents go elsewhere to buy alcohol and make potential deals with them.
“A lot of people only look at the alcohol part, so you don’t have to drink it just because it’s there. But you’ll see the benefits from it in the county.” It’s going to be a wet county and that county will benefit from the money you spend there. Why not keep it in? Let’s see this place grow.”

Mr Shockley said: We want to grow and prosper and keep people in the county instead of going out and spending money. “
