Re City Council race for Place 1
In the contest for Place 1 on the City Council, Greenville is fortunate to have two good men who have placed their names before the citizens of our city, Tyson Cox and Dan Perkins. I am sure Tyson Cox would make a good councilman; however, I am endorsing Dan Perkins for the following reasons:
He has a proven record of voting for things that will benefit all citizens.
He is a man of integrity. He is not influenced by special interests or preconceived agendas. In other words, he will vote his convictions.
He researches issues coming before the Council and is prepared to discuss his ideas before voting.
He welcomes input from constituents of his district; case in point, the smoking ban in restaurants and other public places.
He listens to the citizens and will answer their questions.
Dan is intelligent, but he also has a servant’s heart. He truly cares about people.
For these reasons, I am giving my endorsement to Dan Perkins for Place 1 on the Greenville City Council.
Very truly yours,
Former Mayor and City Councilman

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.

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.
