About – Charles Francis for Raleigh Mayor
The history of Charles’ family is deeply tied to the history of Raleigh and the fight for Civil Rights in North Carolina. His maternal grandfather, Charles Irving Sr., co-founded the Irving-Swain Press which produced publications and event notices for groups like the NAACP and local voters’ movements. The Press’ printing of North Carolina A&T’s school paper containing a picture of the famous Woolworth’s sit-in protest is on permanent display in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Charles himself grew up in Raleigh. After law school Charles clerked for Judge Richard C.
Erwin who was the first African American to be elected to statewide office in North Carolina. He later became a federal prosecutor for the Middle District of North Carolina, but chose to return to Raleigh to raise his family and create a life centered around helping fellow Raleigh citizens. Through his legal practice, Charles has worked hard to protect the rights and interests of ordinary people. As general counsel, Charles helped the RHA get federal government grants to rebuild communities in Capitol Park, Chavis Heights, and Walnut Terrace, and made the RHA one of the most successful housing authorities in the country. Charles has also always been extremely active in public service, supporting communities across Raleigh.
Besides serving as a Raleigh City Council member, he has been a leader in a number of local organizations that serve the interests of Raleigh citizens. He has served as director of the Centennial Authority which built and operates PNC Arena, the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, Research Triangle Park Foundation, and YMCA of the Triangle. They have three children: Taylor, who is a senior at Appalachian State, Logan, a sophomore at UNC-CH, and Charles II who is a senior in high school. As a Raleigh resident for most of his life, with deep roots in the community, Charles knows that our city has problems that are deep and fundamental.
