Perry turing his campaign negative is an act of desperation. Front runners don't need it.
This tactic by Perry reflects the leadership style we can expect from him - if you don't agree with him he will twist the facts to undermine you. In fact, Perry's blog post is mis-leading in that Perry suggests that the firefighter endorsement mailers are attack pieces when they are NOT.
Even as I respect the man, it is both amazing and disappointing to see Perry present himself re-writing history, misleading on his input and actions, and misconstruing his opponents' position and her supporters. In this way, Perry does not exemplify the values of honesty, integrity, sincerity, and accountability so important to Ward 13 and our City. Likely this is just one reason why the WARD 13 DFL VOTERS did NOT endorse him and selected Palmisano.
Oh, and if you don't like firefighter endorsements try these folks who know she is the best candidate for the job:
