Harold Coker Backing Larry Grohn For City Council District 4

Monday, February 4, 2013
Again, thanks for having allowed me to serve as your County Commissioner for 20 years They were very pleasant but challenging years of my life.

I am writing you a quick note today to recommend a good friend who I worship with each Sunday for City Council District 4 seat in the March election coming up soon.

I have known Larry Grohn several years now and know he is the most dedicated and knowledgeable person to represent us in our city government. He is ready to serve on day one. A regular attendee to the City Council meetings for the last 31/2 years, he knows the issues confronting the city and has responsible and conservative answers for each of them.

Please consider joining Lil and me in supporting Larry in the upcoming City election. In closing, let me remind you that early voting begins Feb. 13.

Harold Coker, County Commissioner Emeritus
