Ms. Payne-Jones and her family moved to Charles City in 2006. We are the descendants of James and Keziah Charity, who settled in Charles City County as recorded in the 1810 census. Our family has a long rich history of accomplishments and contributions to the county.
In the spirit of continuing our family’s contributions to the county, Helen agreed to campaign for School Board and was elected in November 2011. She is a former vice president at Bank of America and REDC Community Capital Group, with decades of experience in consumer/commercial financing.
I felt it was important to have parent representation on the school board; someone with a real vested interest.' Helen and her husband Micheal are the proud parents of four children; their youngest is attending Charles City High School.
