Meet Larry Ahern, 'grumpy Republican'

13

September

SEMINOLE — Larry Ahern, who's running for House District 51, sees himself as a "kind of grumpy Republican" who is concerned about the lack of leadership in Tallahassee.

"I've been looking in the community for a way to serve," Ahern said last week. He made his comments to the editorial board of the St. Petersburg Times.

When he met Democrat Janet Long, the District 51 incumbent, Ahern decided he had found his place.

"She seems to be antibusiness," Ahern said. "I don't see" that Long has made any efforts to promote or create an environment to encourage job creation. Ahern said he also offers voters a more conservative alternative on social issues.
