Dr. Lew Johnson

Lew’s past pubic service as a Planning Commission Member and his 23 years as a local small business owner give him the experience needed to be an excellent member of the Planning Commission.

Lew believes that the continued protection of Charlestown’s dark night skies, open space and other natural resources, and the charm of our village centers is key to the long term health of Charlestown’s economy and low tax rate.
