Republican Akron area senator Frank LaRose has a reputation nationwide as an advance man. He’s helped carry out campaign events and rallies for several presidential candidates such as John McCain and John Kasich.

For the inauguration, LaRose was asked to make sure everything was in order at the Blair House, where the Trumps stayed before moving into the White House.

LaRose says he’s honored to be working a presidential inauguration.
