Council incumbent to run again
Incumbent Bill Truman will not seek another two-year term.
Perrotto joins Paul Higginbotham, 57, of 2607 Kennedy Road, in taking out nomination papers. Higginbotham owns Paul's Tree Service.
Perrotto, 58, of 4512 E. Milwaukee St., is a financial investment adviser. He is seeking his second term.
Perrotto said he loves Janesville and wants to use his financial and business background to help it.
There is much unfinished business in getting Janesville through difficult economic times, he said.
"We will succeed, and I want to be a part of that," he said.
Perrotto said he was convinced to seek re-election because many residents encouraged him to do so.
"It has been a consistent message: 'You have done a great job, and we still need your voice on the council,'" he wrote in an e-mail to friends when announcing his decision to seek re-election.
Other residents running for office include Deborah Dongarra-Adams, K. Andreah Briarmoon, Michael Knilans, Sam Liebert, Billy McCoy, and incumbents George Brunner and Russ Steeber.
Residents who want to run for office must pick up nomination papers at City Hall, 18 N. Jackson St. They must gather no fewer than 200 but no more than 400 signatures and file the papers by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 4.
