Perry Perkins, The Right Candidate For District 7 - And Response

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Perry Perkins is a man of integrity, he will not only talk the talk, he will walk the walk.  I am not writing this as a District 7 voter, but as a friend who has had the pleasure of knowing Perry for the last 25+ years. During the past 25 years, I have never known Perry to be anything but truthful, honest, hardworking and a man of his word.   

I have had the pleasure of not only calling Perry my friend but also my neighbor for several years.  He was always willing to help with anything we needed and expected nothing in return.  Perry will go above and beyond to accomplish and achieve the goals he sets and this would make him a valuable asset to everyone in District 7.   

Perry’s commitment to the organizations he is involved in is commendable to say the least.  He is an avid believer in helping children as you can see from his involvement with the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.  When Perry says he is going to do all he can to better the education of our children, he really means it.  He will go the extra mile to make sure everyone in his District is satisfied.   

If you live in District 7 and haven’t had the opportunity to meet Perry, make it a priority, he is always willing to listen to the people in his community.  It really shouldn’t be a question who you should cast your vote for, Perry Perkins is definitely the candidate who can make things happen.

We believe Perry Perkins is the best candidate for the District 7 County Commission seat. He has proven countless times through the years we've known him that he would rather help others than help himself.  

He has played an important role in our lives since our son was born with club feet. Before he was even five days old, Perry had an appointment for us at the Shriner's Hospital in Lexington, Ky. where he volunteers a lot of his time every month to dress up as a clown for the kids and to serve on the Board of Governors.  

He's one of the hardest workers we've ever known and he gets a great deal of satisfaction out of helping his community. Perry is just an all-around good man. The people of District 7 can't go wrong in voting for him. We truly believe he will serve us well.
