L.I. tributes for Larry Elovich
The death at 77 of Larry Elovich, former Democratic leader in Long Beach, brought continued condolences on Sunday from those in the political world.
An example, from Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola):
"He was a mentor to me and an affable and humble friend loved by many on Long Island. He was also a devoted leader who always worked in a bipartisan way to make his community of Long Beach a better place."
