Larry Coleman

A fresh perspective with proven leadership

For NC Senate

After service to his country through a distinguished career in the military, Larry is ready to serve the citizens of NC Senate District 22 by bringing change and a fresh perspective to the NC Senate. Although Larry has never held an elected office, he is no stranger to serving his community. As a longtime resident of the District he played an active role in the school system by serving as a member of the Easley site based decision making team and establishing an Exceptional Children's component of the Durham PTA. He also served on the special needs advisory committee of Durham Parks & Rec. His current community volunteer effort is developing the local VFW property, located in Bragtown, to provide over 150 units of affordable housing along with a Veteran & Community Co-op. 

Larry believes government should protect opportunities, not provide outcomes and understands that the issues facing the district are complex and don't have an easy fix. But he has the kind of experience, in both military and community leadership, that is nonpartisan and focused on how to get people to complete a mission rather than taking sides and protecting special interests.
