Perry Perkins For District 7

Saturday, March 08, 2014
I have known Perry  Perkins over 20 years. I first met Perry at a skate party for DARE students. I was the K-9 handler for Signal Mountain Police at that time and was helping with our DARE program. I was  later assigned to the DARE Program and Perry helped us raise money for the program not just Signal Mountain but Hamilton County as well. He never said no and even came up with more ways to raise money. We often had  overnight skates with 250 children, and he was right there helping.
 He even helped North Georgia Sherriffs raise money for their programs. He was in our schools all the time helping and encouraging us to do more and be the best officers. 
 
I am now retired and own a small business. I have asked Perry for his help  with my business  and he is always  more than eager to help. I know Perry is the best one for District 7. Even though I do not live there I would encourage the people of District 7 to vote for Perry. He is in the race for the right reasons. He cares about people, I know he cares about his community and Hamilton County will be better with Perry Perkins in the District 7 seat.

Kudzu Incursion On Scenic Highway

I don't know if I am the only Lookout Mountain resident to notice that Scenic Highway is about to be one and a half lanes. Kudzu is encroaching over the guard rail and onto the road. In many places you can no longer tell where the road ends and the guard rail begins. A number of new and older drivers don't need to be guessing about where the road ends.
