Several local advertising experts said that while California Sun may not have set out to create a controversy, the flap and resulting media coverage is worth far more than the cost of running the outdoor print ad.

“There is nothing like a good controversy to increase the value of an advertizing campaign,” said Kassy Perry, owner of Sacramento’s Perry Communications.

Keeping Up with Kassy Perry

Kassy Perry, President/CEO of Perry Communications, Inc., says the riding lessons she has provided her daughters Morgan and Kaitlin brought an unexpected reward last week: Kaitlin was granted a near full-ride scholarship to Texas Christian University to join its NCAA Division 1 Equestrian Team. Perry, herself an equestrian, says training for horse competitions has taught her, and her girls, many lessons over the years about the merits of teamwork, hard work, calculating risks and taking responsibility for something other than oneself (namely, the horse). Training and competing also stress the need to stay focused in the moment. Perry, who has ridden competitively since her childhood, learned the importance of focus on Memorial Day weekend 2005 when she lost focus for a split second while training on her horse. The horse threw her and Perry broke a vertabrae in her back. Before going into surgery, she was told she might not walk again, but a successful operation and rehab brought Perry back to walking -and of course – riding competitively again with her daughters. As cliché as it sounds, the mishap was one of the best things that ever happened to her, she says. “You focus on the positive things and you realize how important the moment is,” says Perry. Perry is now facing a new challenge come fall – the empty nest. Kaitlin will be a freshman at TCU and her older daughter Morgan will be finishing her undergraduate degree in Agribusiness at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

92. Kassy Perry
Kassy Perry’s communications firm – she’s not a lobbyist – specializes in health issues, and her role is likely to expand as some version of health care reform takes root in California. She represents myriad companies and groups such as Aetna U.S. Healthcare, PhRMA, MAXIMUS, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Merck, who are deeply interested in California’s health reform issues. In 2008, in something of a departure for Perry, she was called in to try and salvage the sputtering No on Prop. 8 campaign.

Back on her feet: Local PR folks know that Kassy Perry is a horsewoman. And they know she had a rough tumble off one of her mounts 18 months ago. But they didn’t learn until recently just how bad that spill actually was.

The news was revealed this month when Perry – head of Perry Communications Group – was awarded a lifetime achievement award from the Sacramento Public Relations Association.

In presenting the award, newsie-turned-pitchman Stan Atkinson disclosed that Perry smashed a vertebra in the accident and was told she would never walk – let alone ride – again. READ MORE
