As a father of 6, Charlie puts family above all else. God, family, community - those are what matters most to him. Keeping his family safe is one of Charlie's most sacred duties. To that end, he is a staunch supporter of law enforcement, firefighters, and all first responders. His own brother was a police officer, who deployed to Iraq because it was safer than the streets he patrolled. As a Councilman, Charlie will do whatever it takes to ensure public safety AND the safety of police officers and firefighters is always at the forefront of the City's priorities. Safe streets bring in more business and quality jobs, which only helps the City and those that are in it - and Charlie takes that seriously.
As a U.S. Marine who has deployed 8 times, Charlie is no stranger to fighting for what matters most and is testament of his ability to face adversity and stand tall. While his deployments required immense sacrifice from him and his family, he knew what was on the line and was willing to answer the call and is once again willing to make those sacrifices for the great city he calls home.
Charlie joined the Marine Corps in 2001, just months prior to 9/11, so he is also no stranger to getting in the fight right away. Although wounded in combat in 2004, Charlie continued to answer that call time and time again and continues to serve his country in the Marine Corps Reserves.
Charlie started his first business while still in high school and his entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. In 2011, after leaving active duty, he started his most recent venture here in Fort Worth, which continues to thrive.
Charlie is also a TCU graduate of the Executive MBA program, which will only be another strength he will bring to the City Council. His real-world experience, matched with his extensive education will be strengths the City of Fort Worth, and its residents, will surely benefit from.
