Larry Sharpe is a Husband, Father, Marine Corps Veteran, Entrepreneur, Teacher, and Political Activist. His mission is to help people find happiness through community and purpose, often by overcoming bad policy decisions in government. He ran for Governor of New York twice. In his first run, he achieved third-party ballot access with about 100,000 votes. Then, the state changed the rules and took that away. Larry built a coalition for ballot access between the Libertarian Party, Green Party, and Forward Party. He supports Ranked Choice Voting, and tried to stop one party rule in New York, which encourages corruption in districts where people run unopposed due to the corrupt power of gerrymandering. He sued for ballot access in federal and state court multiple times and was denied by a system that favors the status quo. Larry is a businessman who started a trucking business and sold a
successful distribution company, an executive coach and management consultant who has mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives, and companies in leadership and team building skills, a strategic consultant for thought leaders in government, finance, law, technology, media, and healthcare, and a teacher and guest instructor who taught English, management, and business at universities such as Yale, Columbia, and John Jay College.
