MacMillan to run federally
Ron MacMillan will be the Conservative candidate in Charlottetown in October’s federal election.
He recently defeated businesswoman Linda Clements during a nomination meeting.
“I know and appreciate the values that are important to the residents of this riding; I share those experiences and values,” he said.
Sean Casey holds the seat and has indicated he plans to re-offer.
A graduate of UPEI and UNB Law School, MacMillan practised law in Charlottetown before being recruited by the Pat Binns’ government to serve as deputy attorney general and deputy minister of Community Services. He later served as a deputy minister with the Yukon government, before deciding in 2013 to return to P.E.I.
He is vice-chairman of the trustee board at Zion Presbyterian Church, a member of the research ethics board at Holland College, an instructor with the Seniors College of P.E.I. and a volunteer with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. He and his wife Mary have four children - Megan, Neil, Ross and Suzanne.
