Larry grew up in Bridgetown and graduated from Elder High School in 2008. Inspired by his mother, who raised three children as a single parent, Larry grew up understanding the meaning of hard work and determination. Family is the foundation of a person’s future. Some have more opportunities than others and this is something Larry wishes to address by putting together family workshop programs.
Larry’s earliest public service was serving in the United States Marine Corps from 2009 – 2013. During his four years of honorable and faithful service, Larry was a tank crewman on the M1A1 Abrams. He was promoted five times within four years and during his deployment to Afghanistan, his unit called for him to perform the position above his own as tank commander at the age of 21. It goes with out saying that Larry has experience in being a leader and rising above the occasion to get the job done.
After Larry’s service in the Marines, he attended the University of Cincinnati studying Criminal Justice, Information Technology and Philosophy. He graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors Degree of Science.
Larry was introduced to politics during his field placement experience at the University of Cincinnati. Instead of participating in one internship, Larry had three with a fully loaded semester of classes. Larry called it his, “multilateral internship experience.” He interned for the Vice Mayor of Cincinnati, David Mann; at Mann and Mann Law under the direction of Michael Mann; and, at J.T. Riker, LPA., under the direction of Mr. Timothy Riker.
After Larry graduated he received a call from Michael Mann concerning his campaign in 2016 for Common Pleas Court. He gladly took the job as campaign manager just to stay on board through 2017 to manage David Mann’s campaign.
During his college years, he decided to move to North College Hill. This city is truly “the center of it all.” It was the perfect place to live when it came to commuting to school and work. During this time, he found North College Hill to be a diamond in the rough — a city with so much potential. This inspired Larry to stay in North College Hill and run for City Council.
Currently, Larry is a political consultant and President of Queen City Strategies, which is located here in North College Hill. Larry is happily married to Kelly Williams. They have a six-month-old son and two Great Danes, Gunny and Sabot.
