S. HENRY HARRIS

S. Henry Harris, candidate for house of representatives in group 1, submitted the following statement of his candidacy:
"I have lived in what is now Pinellas County all my life and in St. Petersburg for the past 35 years. I have seen St. Petersburg grow from a small town having two blocks of paving (on Central from Second  St.), to the city of today. As a young man, I worked in grocery stores, with the carpenters as an apprentice, a bookkeeper and handy-man around the city hall, abstract of title offices and when 25 years of age, returned to school for the study of law. This course was interrupted by the World war and upon my return from service, which was completed in 1919, I began to practice law. Since that time i have bee actively engaged in the practice of law in St. Petersburg.
"I believe my experience and acquaintance with our community and with the county as a whole, will help me to serve well, as a representative; will help me to understand more clearly the needs of our city and county and will help me to determine more definitley if any proposed law is fair and will be beneficial to this community."
