Al Charles

Franklin School Committee

My guiding principle is to help where I can.

I’m a man of many hats. Husband of nearly 13 years, Franklin resident of 12 years, father of 2 boys (8 & 10), and hopefully a member of your 2021 - 2023 Franklin School Committee.

I have lived in Massachusetts nearly my entire life and when it came down to setting our family’s roots, my wife and I made the wise decision to choose Franklin; a decision we would make over and over again. We were fortunate enough to grow a family here and become part of the community.

I have served the community as a Basketball, Baseball, and Soccer Coach. I also took time out to participate in events at the school. This included volunteering to be a Reading and Math workshop teacher’s assistant, field trip chaperone, leading 2 Parent Communication Council (PCC) subcommittees, and helping configure laptops before the kids returned to school following being remote during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During my day job, I'm a Deployment Manager. This work requires being able to set clear goals of what needs to be accomplished, working with those affected by the change to make sure their voices are heard and their concerns are addressed, and lastly having the belief that any obstacle can be overcome with perseverance and determination. I know that all of these skills would be great additions to the School Committee.
