Councilman Bernard Parks and Councilwoman Jan Perry
Councilman Bernard Parks became the first current councilperson to endorse someone for mayor in 2013 with his support of colleague Jan Perry today.
Downtown News Jon Regardie reports
that the Perry Campaign was keen to note Parks law enforcement background in an effort to sell their candidate as someone who will prioritize public safety if elected.
Parks for his part stated this about endorsing Perry."I am endorsing Jan Perry for Mayor because she understands that in order to have a prosperous city, it must be a safe city," Parks said in the statement. "In her tenure as Councilwoman, she has supported innovative measures such as the Safer City Initiative that has made Skid Row safer for all that live, work and seek to recover their lives there."
