I have had the pleasure of working with Larry Cope over the last several years and find him to be a very motivated and outstanding individual. He has been very active in the economic expansion and retention of jobs in Tuolumne County including ideas that help provide opportunity for new ideas for business including the development of the Innovation Lab. Larry is not afraid to get his hands dirty to get the job done and goes above and beyond the responsibilities of his job.
Larry is a plethera of knowledge and very passionate about what he does. He is very committed to providing the best service to his clients as he possibly can and if he doesn't have the answers, he'll find someone who does! It is very obvious Larry has deep and detailed knowledge of his work.
I would like to offer my strong endorsement of Larry Cope as an excellent representative for economic growth and development in our rural community. Since Larry has arrived on the scene, Tuolumne County has experienced noticeable economic growth in all sectors. This is not a coincidence. Larry “hit the ground running,” and has not stopped. He has energy, passion, and believes in the entrepreneurial spirit of our great community and country.
