Email from Councilman Frank Perrotto
For anyone curious, Councilman Perrotto is up for re-election on April 5.
Upon receiving this email, I gave Councilman Perrotto 5 minutes to apologize before I post his email on the internet. Since he did not, here it is.
I went to your web site and I was appalled.
How dare you conduct yourself, as representative of this Council, by continuing to flaunt your partisan ideologies.
You walk out before the Governor gave his speech as a form of protest. You are disgrace to this council.
You claim you are representing the people. That is nonsense! What about all the people of Janesville who support the Governor. How are you representing them with this despicable behavior?
You should publicly apologize to the citizens of Janesville for your behavior!
Moreover you should repay the city for the cost of the taxpayers dollars that were use to send you to this dinner.
I heard you even joined the protestors after you left....Not even you would be that stupid!
Your actions on the steps of the Courthouse were outrageous. You used your position as a City Councilman to speak against the republicans actions concerning the budget. All under the guise that you represent and speak for the people of Janesville...NONSENSE. You jeopardized the city , its citizens and this council. We need to work with both sides of the legisative body in Madison . Not just your Democrat brothers and sisters. What were you thinking?
Maybe it's time for you to reassess why you are on the City Council"
