   Charles wants to provide more opportunities for all kids in the City of Minneapolis to particpate in Park Board programs while maintaining, fixing and enhancing the aging facilities that currently exist for these kids.

  • Opportunities for work on climate change.
   Charles is anxious to work with other government bodies and agencies to create solutions that solve issues with climate change in the City of Minneapolis and its Park System.
  • Addressing water issues in South Minneapolis.
   Charles sees that the City of Minneapolis and its Park System face challenges from climate change.
