To the editor:
I don’t know anything about the opponent running against Dan Perkins except what I read in the paper, and I am not writing against anyone. However, I do know Dan Perkins and am convinced that he cares about Greenville and every citizen in the city.
I have lived down the street from Dan for 13 years and have had several times to seek his help and/or advice. I know he is a man of faith that seeks guidance from God in making decisions and helping other people. He is honest and sincere in his relationships and believes that individuals who live here should be the concern of the city government without consideration of their social standing or financial status. He has helped many people and does not make a show of it.
When I first moved to Greenville I had some issues with city services but could get no one to listen. I found out that Dan was my councilman and called him. He immediately called the right people, and I received the help needed. He is a busy man but always seems to find time to give attention to those who call on him.
I believe that we need men like Dan helping to make the important decisions that face our city. Even when I thought that things should have been decided differently, I knew he had given thought and prayer to his vote.
You cannot go wrong by returning Dan Perkins to another term on the City Council.

I am writing this letter of appreciation because two weeks ago I had my second knee replacement surgery within six months.
Kill the YMCA project
In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.
Take care of children crossing over border
The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…
Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center
n your Wednesday edition, reporter Brad Kellar briefly touched on the comments of Dr. Jerry Ransom at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
