From the Committee to Elect Mike Perrone, Jr:
Mike said: “There has been far too much favoritism and political back scratching going on in Harford County government for far too long. I believe that the residents of Edgewood, Joppatowne, and Abingdon will embrace a candidate who rejects the culture of cronyism and who has a track record of dedicated community service.”
Mike moved to Joppatowne at the age of two in 1978. His father served in the Coast Guard and moved the family to New York in 1985, returning in 1989. Mike graduated from Joppatowne High School in 1993, and earned an Economics degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1997.
After college, Mike moved to Connecticut and did actuarial work in the Property & Casualty insurance industry. He returned to Harford County in 2005.
Upon returning, Mike started doing accounting and financial analysis work for a media services company in Hunt Valley. In 2010, he went back to school at Harford Community College to become eligible to sit for the CPA Exam, and finished the Exam parts in 2013.
In 2007, Mike took over as president and director of The Sharing Table – a coalition of church groups that serves a hot lunch and distributes groceries every Saturday out of Prince of Peace Church in Edgewood. Mike left The Sharing Table in 2011 to focus on the CPA Exam, and returned in 2013.
Mike was also one of the original six members of the Harford County Campaign for Liberty chapter when it was established in 2008, and was active in the early days of the chapter.
In 2013, Mike completed Community Mediation Maryland’s Basic Mediation Training course and is in the process of becoming a Volunteer Mediator through the Harford County Community Mediation Program.
Mike has served as a lector at Holy Spirit Church in Joppatowne since 2006 and also served on the Pastoral Council at Holy Spirit from 2007 – 2009.
Mike has a long career background in financial analysis which he feels will benefit all citizens of Harford County when the time comes to provide input for the County Budget for the upcoming four years.
