ROCKWELL — Alderman Charles Wingerson is running for re-election in an effort to keep the town focused on the future.

Wingerson, 76, has served a total of 18 years on the Rockwell Town Board. He was an alderman from 1981 to 1987 and started his most recent stint in 2003. He is the current Mayor Pro Tem.

If re-elected, Wingerson said he would “keep Rockwell moving forward with downtown revitalization and pursue new retail and industrial business to keep taxes as low as possible without cutting services.”

He is retired and a former employee of American Greetings Corp. He attended Robert Morris College.

Wingerson is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where has served on various committees. He is a member of the fraternal service organization Knights of Columbus and has spent 20 years volunteering with Meals on Wheels.
