Thanks for visiting my website and for your interest in my campaign. After budget cuts destroyed music education in our public schools, I took action and established Ethos Music Center. Today, Ethos serves thousands of deserving children in our community. I’m running for City Council because our City is facing challenges. We need to strengthen our economy, bring family wage jobs to Portland and keep them here, improve our public schools and make our communities safer.
I have experience tackling tough problems with innovative solutions. If you want a voice on the City Council with a background in business and a dedication to public service, I invite you to get involved with our grassroots campaign. I would be honored to be your next City Commissioner and humbly ask for your vote and support.
Candidate, Portland City Council
THANK YOU PORTLAND TRIBUNE!
“Lewis has actual business experience, a sense of mission for the City Council and a well-defined list of priorities – job creation, small business assistance, investment in affordable housing and city support for schools. These attributes will make a difference on a council that needs less process and more action.”
In an editorial titled “City, County Deserve the Best”, The Portland Tribune has endorsed Charles’ candidacy for Portland City Council. The Tribune also backed Charles in the primary election. To read the article, click here.
