Work Experience:

Candidate's Perspective:
I am known as a Community man. A friendly and hardworking man, a grass roots man and a man who stands for Justice, Peace, Integrity and Love; the people’s choice.

I stand by the concept that “the size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire.” It is that belief which has driven me to become an Attorney-at- Law, a Social Worker, Community & Youth Development worker, and an exemplary father of two beautiful children.

Today, I stand proudly as the Roseau Valley’s election candidate for the United Workers Party – Team Dominica.
Born on May 26 to Marie Gabriel Charles and Eugenia Charles, I was raised in a traditional home at Trafalgar, a village known for its majestic waterfalls and ecological beauty. My father is a former primary school Teacher, Sailor, Businessman, Sports fanatic and Agricultural Extension Officer, and is currently a lay minister at the Assembly of Yahweh. My mother, Eugenia Charles, the matriarch of our extended family, is well loved for her wisdom and for being a motivator for both her own children and over ten others that she has cared for over the years.

At 14 years old, I acted on his passion for community development. I became a member of the Trafalgar/Fond Canie Village Improvement Committee, and assumed chairmanship of that group at the age of 19. Acting on a musical inclination, I joined the Look-US Band at age 15, and to date remain the band’s keyboardist and leader.

I attended the Trafalgar Primary School and the Dominica Community High School, where I was deeply involved in sports. It seemed natural for me to follow in my family’s footsteps with involvement in community sports. Since my youth, I have been involved in the Trafalgar Basketball League, sponsoring a community basketball team the ‘’Bullets”, which is the current Roseau Valley basketball champs.

In 1992, I graduated from the Clifton Dupigny Community College, now the Dominica State College, with a Diploma in Architectural Drawings and Building Design. Subsequently, I migrated to the United Kingdom, where I studied for a Bachelor’s Degree in Community and Youth Work Studies at the University of Sunderland, graduating with honours in 1997.

I worked as a Youth Officer at the Youth Development Division – a government department of the Ministry of Youth Affairs on a part-time basis after completing studies at the University of Sunderland.

My concern for the development of people also led to my participation in service organizations and in teaching. I am a past Director of the Lions Club (Dominica), Co-founder of the Trafalgar Football Academy and an online tutor in law at the University of the West Indies Open Campus Dominica.

In 2006 I left Dominica again for the University of West Indies Cave Hill Campus (Barbados) to pursue a Bachelor’s of Law. I graduated in 2009 from UWI, and following this, attained his Legal Education Certificate (L.E.C) from Trinidad’s Hugh Wooding Law School in 2011.

I was called to the Bar in Dominica on 14 October 2011.

Currently, I operate my own law firmRonald Charles & Associates, which is known for practicing criminal and civil matters.

My nomination as a political candidate for the United Workers Party took place on December 8, 2013 at a meeting of the Roseau Valley’s UWP Constituency Association.

Plans for Constituency:

Redefine the tourism product to stimulate gainful employment to the vendors, crafters and tour guides; redeveloping the playing fields in the Roseau Valley; upgrading the road network spanning the constituency along Cochrane to Wotten Waven to foster eco-tourism and agricultural growth and production; establishing a Roseau Valley Sports Club to focus on football, cricket and basketball and to ensure protection of the flora and fauna of the Roseau Valley.
