Charles Boles for Justice of the Peace
University Lakes Precinct
Charles Boles has demonstrated nearly 30 years of service within the community that holds his heart. He obtained a Barber's license before graduating from Tempe High School in 1981, then after three years of full time barbering, enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Combat Communications Specialist. He served in Europe with the Pershing II Nuclear Missiles and Fort Ord, CA 7th ID Light, allowing him to receive an Honorable Discharge and Good Conduct Medal (among other personal and professional accomplishments). He is proud to have served his country.
Upon returning to civilian life, Charles re-entered the barbering business while working on his Communications degree with a minor in Human Resource Development at Grand Canyon University (graduating in 1993).
In 2000, Charles completed his Master's degree in Education, Counseling in Human Relations from Northern Arizona University. That same year, Councilman Len Copple sponsored Charles to the Tempe Police Citizen Review Board for six years, which was a board that reviewed cases in which the public felt there may have been inappropriate conduct by police officers.
Charles has since received a Certificate in Professional Counseling from Ottawa University, has participated in the Tempe Elementary School District Parent Advisory Counsel and continues to serve as part of the Board of Directors for The Longan Educational Foundation.
Active in his local congregation and small group, Charles continues to enhance his service to others within his community, with his most recent addition being the Justice Courts Victim's Impact Panel.
In addition to his formal education and life choices of character, Charles has been a small business owner and landlord in Tempe for many, many years. This experience alone has brought him knowledge and insight into many situations that routinely arise on the court's bench.
