(Waukesha, Wisconsin, December 17) ‐ The Committee to Recall Aaron Perry would like to thank all the many volunteers and supporters from all non‐partisan political spectrums. We undertook a fast‐paced effort that built steam faster than many could have imagined. We were on pace to collect more than enough signatures in under three weeks. Many outsiders underestimated the force of a motivated electorate in these times of COVID‐19 and a pending Wisconsin winter.
We want to extend our gratitude to Aaron Perry for doing the right thing for the residents of the City of Waukesha, District 12, by allowing us to heal and move on from this current situation. We wish the whole Perry family a quick recovery and hope the rest of the community provides them the space to heal.
The Committee to Recall Aaron Perry did our level best to keep the issues based on available facts and ask that the online community allow him the opportunity to rebuild as all people deserve.
The official resignation of Aaron Perry as Alderman of District 12 in the City of Waukesha officially ends the recall efforts.
A final thought, we must understand that all politics is local. While many of us are weary of national and state politics, local politics affect us the most on a day‐to‐day basis. Yet, it’s frequently ignored and overlooked until it’s too late to persuade your official or get involved. So, it’s essential to stay involved and stay alert to what is happening in our communities.
We need to get back to being civic‐minded and motivated to engage at the local level. The local municipalities, school boards, and committees will do what they want without us paying attention and holding them accountable. Get involved and stay involved.
Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you in the neighborhoods of District 12.
