Larry and his wife, Kathy, have spent more than half their life calling the City of Westminster home, where they built a life raising their two children, Deana and Brandon, both attending Adams County schools.
Moreover, Larry is a small business owner in Adams County, establishing his business in real estate nearly 36 years ago. Owning a business in the county has provided Larry with a deep foundation and keen understanding of what it takes to develop a healthy and robust economy, which ultimately leads to the quality of jobs, job availability, and a quality of life that all families work so hard to achieve.
As long-time resident of Adams County for more than 38 years, Larry has been an active resident and compassionate neighbor, dedicated to civic duty and serving his community. Larry has served on the Adams County Economic Development Council, the Westminster Planning Commission, the Board of Directors for Metro North Chamber of Commerce, and the Environmental Committee for the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry—to name a few of the many commissions and councils he has served. His participation in Leadership Metro North, and Fifty for Colorado has strengthened his understanding of Adams County and honed his leadership skills. Additionally, Larry is a graduate of the Adams County Sheriff’s Citizens Academy, where he gained institutional knowledge and a level-headed perspective of our justice system.
Elected for two consecutive terms (eight years) to the Board of Directors for the Regional Transportation District (RTD), Larry understands the importance of transportation and that it impacts each and every one of us, every day. In his tenure with the RTD Board, he’s served as the Board Chair, participated in multiple committees, opened multiple FasTracks projects including the B line to Westminster (serving Adams County residents), and provided key decisions, always keeping the best interest of taxpayers and riders at the forefront of a critical vote. Larry understands the importance of keeping a listening ear to the public, but also keeping a balanced perspective of what’s inclusive for all.
In his spare time, Larry is a supporter of the Boy Scouts of America, participating in fundraising efforts for the Scouts. Furthermore, Larry is a strong supporter of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Adams and Broomfield Counties.
Larry is committed to putting his experience to work for you as your Adams County Commissioner.
