To the Editor,

Paul Perry is very qualified as a candidate for commissioner in this runoff election, and my personal knowledge of his character and integrity tells me he is the right guy for the job.  I have known Paul for 20 years. He has been an Ellis County resident since 1964, has been employed in the financial industry since 1983, an independent businessman since 1990, a court mediator since 1999, and previously served as a Ellis County Justice of the Peace from 1995 to 1999. He has always exhibited a serious business approach to his work, and will serve the people of Ellis County well. Paul has always been for open, transparent, honest governance, and will strive to bring these qualities to the public forum.
