Career Politician Won't Take a Hint
Perkins Files for Senate District 45
Serious question: Is there nothing this man won't run for?
After the last shellacking he took, I think most of us thought he was done.
Boy, were we wrong!
He's decided to throw his hat in the ring for the soon to be vacant seat that Senator Jim Smith is leaving behind.
My experiences with John go back quite a ways. As long as you are not talking politics, he's an alright guy. But dive into conversation about politics that he doesn't agree with and Katy Bar The Door!
As a politician, the best way I can describe him is power hungry bully who LOVES controversy. It's almost like he enjoys to play the part of being an old-fashioned d**k. It seems everything he has done in the political arena he's done to boost his own ego. In a previous comment on a previous post, someone stated how John loves conversation and debate. In reality, John loves telling you what's what. You'd better not don't disagree with him either because he gets loud and angry. An interesting tactic that he employs to intimidate.
In my opinion, he runs for office to only to satisfy himself by having that little bit of power. He's not doing it to be a public servant. In my opinion that is why he lost so many of the last seats he's run for. Not because he's not educated but because of a self serving ego. One would think that after losing to Mike Smith, to Tom Galligan, to Dave Abbott, to Dustin White, and anyone else I can't think of he'd take a hint.
Don't get me wrong, he needs thanked for 45 years of being involved with local government, but it's time to hang up cleats. If he needs money, there are plenty of jobs out there, including in River Ridge. The time for living off the teat of taxpayers has passed.
"Janky" John Vs. "Gunny" Garten
Senate 45 in November will be fun to watch. My prediction is Perkins gets smashed and sent back to Bethlehem or 7th Street or where ever it is he lives now with his biggest black eye yet.
