Charlotte City Council, District 3
It was at Harding High school that Caleb began to notice that there was an inherent difference between the way himself and his peers at Harding were portrayed and the way that students at other historically funded high schools were portrayed. It was then that Caleb began to learn about the rich history of Charlotte’s west-side, and has continued to do so ten years later. For over 5 years, Caleb has worked with numerous leaders especially current Council-member LaWana Mayfield on issues ranging from transportation to affordable housing, and economic development. Caleb understands that experience isn’t gained with how many boards you sit on or how many bullet points you can add to your resume, but how many community members you have listened to. Through the unique experience that Caleb gained in his time in the community, he felt that it was the right time to step up and serve as the City Council member over the district.
