James Perry Announces Candidacy for Ward 1 City Commissioner
I, Mr. James Perry, 82, a native and resident of Douglas, consider myself a community leader “from the People.” As such, my commitment “to the People” in his Ward 1 is rooted in my desire to make positive impact in the place where I live “with the People” by providing leadership which will be accountable before, during, and after the election. An avid attendee of city commission meetings and vocal advocate for Ward 1 issues, I have demonstrated the capacity to work “for the People” to see that their collective voice is heard and agenda prioritized.
Why am I running for this opportunity to serve at this point in my life and the history my beloved city? I know that serving my Ward 1 as a commissioner will be much like serving my country in the army as a member of my WW2 airborne unit. You have to be all in; you are a vital part of a team working together, and finally; you have to fight with each other not against each other.
