The East Hampton Democratic Committee supports Perry Gershon for Congress.
Perry Gershon knows the difference between a career politician and a public servant. Perry worked as a volunteer on the Presidential campaigns of Ted Kennedy and Gary Hart in the 1980s before going on to a successful career in business. In the aftermath of the 2016 election, disturbed by a Washington political class that cares more about themselves than the American people, Perry has set out to personally fight for change.
Perry is fed up with Republicans like Congressman Lee Zeldin and Donald Trump, including their effort to take away health care for millions of Americans, squeezing the middle-class to fund budget-busting tax giveaways for the ultra-wealthy and big corporations, and siding with the NRA instead of working to end gun violence in America. It’s unacceptable.
Perry is running for Congress because it’s time for badly-needed change in America. He will stand up to Donald Trump and anyone who tries to divide Americans by sowing discord, encouraging hate, and fomenting violence. Perry will fight for high-paying jobs, gun violence prevention, affordable health care, high-quality education, clean air and water, social security and Medicare, enhanced veterans’ benefits, and an end to our nation’s never-ending wars, to name just a few.
