Endorsing Perkins

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

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,

Charles Sivley

Former Mayor and City Councilman

(1971-76)

Greenville
