Welcome to my blog

I'm Larry B. Johnson, the Pensacola City Council member for District 4. I was elected November 25, 2008. District 4 encompasses East Pensacola Heights, most of Cordova Park, and about half of East Hill (pretty much everything surrounding Bayou Texar). With this blog, I will be sharing all types of information that I feel is pertinent to my constituents and fellow Pensacolians.

As a member of City Council, I serve as the vice chair of the Enterprise Operations committee, and a member of the Neighbourhood Services committee. As a member of the Enterprise Operations committee, I also serve on the Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization. I've recently been appointed as Council's representative on the Bay Area Resource Council and the Escambia County Tourist Development Council.

Other than my college years at Florida State, I've lived in Pensacola since 1965. I was an Air Force brat who father, Larry Sr., was stationed here as an Air Force recruiter. I learned how to swim in Bayou Texar under a summer program offered by the City of Pensacola, back when water quality allowed it. I'm a small business owner, and I also serve on the board of directors of Emerald Coastkeeper, Inc. I've been involved with many other community organizations and causes.

I was very pleased to be appointed to the Enerprise Operations committee vice-chairmanship by Mayor Wiggins. I'm very interested in the operations of the Pensacola Gulf Coast Regional Airport, which is owned by the City. I'm also interested in the other entities that fall under the purview of Enterprise Operations — the Port of Pensacola, Energy Services of Pensacola, the Saengar Theatre, and the West Florida Public Library.

I will try to update this as often as possible, so I encourage you to check back occasionally. I look forward to all input, ideas, and considerations. You can comment on any post at this blog, or contact me via email at ljohnson@ci.pensacola.fl.us or by phone at (850) 449-1098.
