?If you are in the City of Charlestown you will soon find that you can accomplish some major tasks if you row with The Flowe. David Flowe, that is. Charlestown Mayor Bob Hall appointed Flowe as his Executive Director, knowing he had an extensive background in construction. What he tapped into was a vast array of experiences in many areas and a creative mind for detail.
    Passers-by have probably noticed something is happening on the second floor of the Charlestown City Hall building. The 4,000+ square foot space has been corrected of irregular walls, partitions and uneven floors. New electrical wiring, walls and hardwood floors will soon prevail, in preparation for city officials’ offices. This will add much needed space for public access and assembly rooms, needed for the operations of the city.
