During Charles Meeker’s 10 years as Mayor, Raleigh’s downtown experienced a dramatic revival and the City won countless awards as one of the best places to live and to work in the U.S. His emphasis on collaboration and teamwork was the reason he was such a popular and successful public servant.

As Labor Commissioner, Charles will work to improve worker safety, to ensure accurate classification of workers, and to make sure that workers are paid what they are owed.

North Carolina needs an effective, accountable leader to protect our workers and ensure fairness for all employers. Charles is that leader.
