Randy Perkin’s long sad history of not paying his bills. not voting and fibbing to get business.

Randy Perkin's long sad history of not paying his bills. not voting and fibbing to get business.

I hope this is the last time I ever write a word about Randy Perkins who decided to prey on the Treasure coast in his quest to be a congressman.

The consensus around here is that no one really wants Randy Perkins to be our Democrat congressman on the ticket in November. Maybe some people who are coined Washington insiders.   Shame on you guys who have no regard for us here in the Treasure Coast. This behavoir alone is what chases people away.

My issue is a gut feeling of not trusting this person. I’m extending that gut feeling to people who I thought were friends of us up here of the water but turned out to be fair weather friends. I guess money does buy happiness for you. Good luck! Because we will never trust the people who have been working for him who chose money over our safety!

We have to trust the person we elect!

We all work hard and we want to pay our bills. Now here’s a guy with gobs of money and he chooses to stiff people. Here is multitude of examples. I’m going to summarize but you get the idea.

(Randal Perkins, Voter History, Broward County Supervisor Of Elections
In 2005, as “one of the largest debris-removal firms in the country,” Ashbritt took advantage of
federal regulation loopholes to claim the company was a small business. Ashbritt also
misrepresented itself as a woman-and minority-owned business.
In 2005, Ashbritt Took Advantage Of A Loophole In Federal Regulations To Claim It Was A
Small Business Despite Being “One Of The Largest Debris-Removal Firms In The Country.”
“The government’s list of small businesses receiving Katrina-related federal contracts along the
Gulf Coast includes one of the largest debris-removal firms in the country and a billion-dollar
corporation that boasts former vice president Dan Quayle on its board of directors.

• Ashbritt Was Considered A Small Business When It Received Hundreds Of Millions
Of Dollars In Contracts. “The two companies, AshBritt Inc. and IAP Worldwide
Services Inc., have between them Army Corps of Engineers contracts worth hundreds of
millions of dollars in Gulf Coast recovery work.” (Griff Witte and Renae Merle, “Defining
Small,” The Washington Post, 10/20/05)
• The Corp Of Engineers Continued To Recognize The Company As A Small
Business. “The two companies, AshBritt Inc. and IAP Worldwide Services Inc., have
between them Army Corps of Engineers contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars
in Gulf Coast recovery work. Because both firms were small when they won their first
contracts, the Corps of Engineers said it still considers work performed under those deals
as work by small businesses.” (Griff Witte and Renae Merle, “Defining Small,” The Washington
Post, 10/20/05)

“Ashbritt Was Listed As Minority-Owned, Woman-Owned And
Hispanic-American Owned.” “In the federally run Central Contractor Registration
database — which is used by small and minority-run firms to market themselves —
AshBritt was listed as minority-owned, woman-owned and Hispanic-American-owned as
of last week.” (Griff Witte and Renae Merle, “Defining Small,” The Washington Post, 10/20/05)
“But When Saily Perkins Gave $25,000 To The Republican National Committee And $2,000 To
A Congressional Campaign In 2004, She Listed Her Occupation As Homemaker.” (Griff Witte and
Renae Merle, “Defining Small,” The Washington Post, 10/20/05)
Randy Perkins told The Washington Post that listing Ashbritt as a “minority-owned, womanowned” small business was a “clerical mistake.

So that’s it. Randy Perkin’s long sad history of not paying his bills. not voting and fibbing to get business. He has lot of money to run ad’s all day long. Let’s not go for the Oligarch!
