Perry For President! (Al Perry, That Is)

Posted By on Tue, Dec 20, 2011 at 12:08 AM

Tucson rock ’n’ roll legend Al Perry is throwing his hat into the presidential race.

“Somebody has to run,” says Perry who is well known to area music fans as the singer-songwriter who has penned songs such as “Loserville” and “Little By Little.”

“I don’t agree with any of the candidates, at all, whatsoever,” said Perry over a late breakfast at Mother Hubbard's diner on Monday. “I don’t agree with them on even one thing, hardly—Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, whatever. And most of this stuff isn’t that hard to figure out. I try to use logic, I try to use common sense, I try to use human decency when I make a decision.”

Perry will like use some variant of his full name, Al Richard Perry, but he says he’s not, to the best of his knowledge, related to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose name will also appear on the Arizona presidential primary ballot unless the stumbling GOP candidate drops out of the race before then.

Perry is just one of the freedom-loving Americans to show an interest in Project White House 2012, the Tucson Weekly’s Reality Journalism competition that is open to any candidate on the Arizona's Feb. 28 presidential primary ballot.

Today marks the first day that the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office is accepting nomination forms for the primary ballot. To qualify for the Arizona ballot, all that’s needed is a notarized, two-page form.
