Perry had these words to share as he entered his first day:
I am honored and thrilled to be serving as the new Program Director of the Bay Area Urban Debate League. The experiences I have had in the political world and the non-profit sector have prepared me to bring new energy and ideas to the table.
There has not been a day since I began debating in 1999 in which I have not given great consideration to the improvement and reform of our educational system to increase opportunities for at-risk and marginalized youth. In my opinion nothing is more important. I look forward to working to increase rigorous, student-centered pedagogical opportunities for young people in the Bay Area.
