Little did he know, he’d be shaking hands with those same supporters that night as he toured the city of Philadelphia as a new member of the Union. Even with the Sons of Ben run-in, Perk says landing in Philadelphia didn’t even cross his mind. “I had no clue,” he told ASN Philly. “Philly is probably one of the last places I thought I’d end up because of the two guys they already had.”
