    So sorry I missed this today!!! As a former board d member of the CBA, an Acre resident and retired teacher, I am aware of Charlie’s efforts to save little Canada and his significance in organizing a coalition against red lining urban communities!!! Charlie has put Lowell on the National map as a model of urban organizing, community development and affordable housing development!
