Frank MacEachern has announced he will be seeking the Ward 3
councillor position in Charlottetown when municipal voters head to the polls Nov. 5.
“Ward 3 is a series of neighbourhoods with diverse people, perspectives, opportunities and challenges,’’ MacEachern said. “I see my role as a representative of this diversity – that means listening and then listening some more.’’
MacEachern said he is committed to working with neighbours to address critical issues, to remove any barriers that may prevent the community from reaching its goals.
“All of our residents need and deserve a decent and affordable place to live, a decent job and a clean, healthy and safe environment. As of today, this is not the case.”
MacEachern and his wife, Jennifer Ann, have called Brighton-Ward 3 home for more than 27 years. They have four children, Annie, Emma, Isaac and Tillie, all of whom were raised and educated in Brighton.
MacEachern holds a bachelor of design degree in environmental and community planning from Dalhousie University and diploma in urban and rural planning from Holland College.
He spent eight years as a community planner with the province, and has spent last 26 years running his own business in downtown Charlottetown.
He spent several years representing P.E.I. on the boards for Cross Country Ski Canada, Bobsleigh Canada, and Island Trails. He’s also worked as a door-to-door canvasser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, as a coach for local minor hockey and minor basketball teams, or a fire-tender at Art In The Open. MacEachern also volunteered as a member of the downtown committee for the city.
