Businessman Jamie Larkin has announced he will be a candidate for mayor in Charlottetown in this fall’s civic election.
The 48-year old Larkin has worked in real estate and as an financial advisor with the Investors Group.
Larkin ran in the 2014 civic election in Ward 1 but lost to Eddie Rice by nine votes.
Larkin would like to see a city that provides an opportunity for everyone.
He’s been involved with Lennon House as board member that is dedicated to helping people with addictions and mental health issues.
He’s also involved with the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry.
Larkin would also like to see a universal basic income and affordable housing addressed. He’s also interested in seeing small businesses succeed and suggests beer and win be allowed to be sold in local corner stores.
Larkin is the second candidate to run for mayor. He joins Al Douglas who announced his intentions early in the year.
