I am writing this letter to tell you about Harvey Perleberg who is running for the office of jailer of Grant County.
I knew of him from my brother, Mike Louis, who was in jail at the time he worked there. My brother told me that if it wasn’t for Mr. Perleberg, he would have had a hard time.
Perleberg went out of his way to make sure he had tooth ache medicine and paid for it out of his own pocket. That small act of kindness changed my brother’s life. After he served his time, he moved south and raised a family and has never been in trouble again.
Later, Perleberg ran a water truck service in Grant County. I know that several times he has given loads of water at no charge to elderly and people who could not pay for it at that time. I think it’s time for someone like this to run the jail—someone who understands the needs of the people who need help.
