As a lifelong resident of Southington, Jack Perry embodies the values of many of our close-knit towns in central Connecticut. Son of Kurt Holyst and Sylvia Sikorska, Jack learned early on what it means to put in a hard day’s work, and earn your fair share. At age 13, Jack rolled up his sleeves and went to work with his family’s landscaping business. While in high school, Jack participated in Southington High School’s vocational agriculture program (FFA), and graduated in 2008.

Upon graduating, Jack’s ever-growing entrepreneurial spirit was realized when he started his own small business, HQ Dumpsters & Recycling. While fighting the winds of the Great Recession, Jack successfully grew his business within Southington, as well as surrounding towns. Since incorporating his HQ Dumpsters, Jack has enthusiastically been involved in charitable giving, whether it be supporting local nonprofits or charities, town events or sporting events, Jack Perry has been front and center to give back to the community that helped shaped the person he is today.

“ As a small business owner and job creator, I understand the importance of government supporting people like myself, rather than getting in the way with burdensome regulations. I’m exploring a bid for the Connecticut State Senate because I believe my perspective could help to create jobs and opportunities within our state.” — Jack Perry
