This is the first time Tim Garry, a retired businessman in the construction industry, has run for elective office, but he doesn’t plan to make a second career of it.

He tells Pod Squad host Chad Blair he’d serve just one term if elected Honolulu mayor and donate most of his salary to charity. During that term, he said he’d upgrade the city’s Department of Planning and Permitting, as well as Oahu’s lifeguard services.

Listen to the podcast to hear more from Garry, the self-described “unofficial mayor of Waikiki.”

This is the final of our series of four podcasts with lesser-known mayoral candidates. The others included Ron Hochuli, Larry Friedman and Ernest Caravalho.
