Goliath Endorses John Perkins for Commissioner

Goliath see the  big Primary race for Commissioner.  Goliath know many say,  “what?  Goliath endorsing ‘Toxic’ John?   Yes. You bet I do.  Here’s why:

Perkins is being challenged by  Charlestonian, David Abbott.   But,  I can’t figure out why.  Abbott has put out nothing as I can tell that even begins to explain what he offers the Democrat party and frankly…when I look at what little he has put out it doesn’t impress.   (Have you seen the guy’s videos on FB?)

Despite all the complaints I know the “Chatter” has about Perkins,  the fact is he is the smartest person in that race and knows how government works.  Goliath talked, years ago, to Perkins and the topic was what candidates do once they are elected. John commented on how he went to seminars so he would understand how the local and State government structures interacted and actually learned about how things got done.

Perkins ran against Mike Moore the last time he was in a contest for Commissioner.  When we re-run that race,  I wonder if folks think it turned out the right way? After all Moore wound up resigning and going Republican.  While on the Commission, all Moore seemed to accomplish was voting ‘NO’ on things.  Meanwhile, since caucused onto the Commission, Perkins has accomplished things and seems to be doing a good job. Of course, every time he does something,  people come up with conspiracy theories why it’s no good. And Goliath cannot agree or endorse everything. But, taken all in all he is the far superior candidate in this race.

Here’s a video of Mr. Abbott made by his campaign.  When I watch it I see a nice person but not the leader of the County Government.  That”s Goliath’s opinion.

    From Synonymous IV on the vaunted Goliath Coliseum Forum:

    Goliath’s Jeffersonville Prosperity Desk

    Both Clark County Commissioner
    John Perkins and Mayor Tom Galligan
    discussed economic development issues
    last night in their presentations.
    They spoke of the great econ development projects being implemented
    in Jeffersonville,
    and the new sewage treatment plant as one of the key elements
    that allow that growth.

    Commissioner Perkins spoke concerning his efforts
    to bring in high paying manufacturing jobs to Clark County.

    As Mayor Galligan also said last night:
    “I would like to paraphrase James Carville’s
    statement about “It’s the economy, stupid!”
    In their leadership roles, they are assisting Clark County’s growth and prosperity.

    Note: Swiss-based auto supplier plant to create 220 jobs in Jeffersonville

    How would you like to earn about $40,000 a year making parts that go into Kentuckiana-made Fords, Hondas and Toyotas? A Swiss-based supplier plans to offer such opportunities at a new facility going up in Jeffersonville’s River Ridge Commerce Center.

      I like the fact that Mr. Perkins speaks up for what he feels is right or wrong regardless of who he is speaking to or about. To me that is what true leadership is about.

    Having all the book knowledge in the world is worthless unless you have the common sense to apply it. That is why I’m backing Dave Abbott for Commissioner.

    Abbott is trying to do whats best for the County of Clark. Why bash his videos on FB by the way, they are very interesting and not read off a script from what I see? Perkins has no shot at winning the race. Quit being such a sore thumb and run for election yourself big GOLIATH hahaha

      Hey Sam, welcome to Gawnews. Goliath tried to run for commissioner, but the dad blast republicans demanded to see Goliath’s birth certificate. They refused to accept the clay tablet written in cuneiform!
