Public Defender for the 12th Judicial Circuit
Sarasota, FL, USA.
At the Manatee County division of the Public Defender's Office, one of the largest law offices in the region, Larry currently manages over 20 attorneys and 40 total employees. Tireless and extremely organised, Larry is a dedicated steward of Manatee Country residents' tax dollars and the Public Defender's office. Now, having spent over 25 years in the Public Defender's Office, rising through the ranks and becoming the top administrator, Larry is running for Public Defender of the 12th Judicial Circuit.
Being Public Defender will be a continuation of his lifetime commitment to public service. From founding a charter school in all-night sessions around his dining room table with other concerned parents, to serving as its president since 2002; the coaching youth basketball, and serving on the Manatee County Safety Commission, Larry has always found time to give back to the community. As a part time resident of Eleuthera, Larry has found a platform to continue to share his passion for community driven initiatives, and here, through the rigorous science platform delivered by CORE.
Larry also serves on the CORE advisory board.
