Larry is Republican Because
“I am a Republican because we lay the groundwork for opportunity and success. Anyone, regardless of race or socioeconomic background, who wants to succeed, can do so with the foundation of principles we have instilled in our communities.”

He is a graphic designer and business owner in Round Rock, Texas, where he and his wife of 20 years, Marie, are raising their two children.

His parents have served as pastors for thirty years and as police chaplains for ten years.
Larry’s efforts in the legislature focus on the state budget, special education, and technology issues.
