January 17, 2017, Dimple Ajmera was unanimously selected by the Charlotte City Council to fill the District 5 seat, vacated by State Representative John Autry. She didn’t miss a beat jumping right in to advocate for safe neighborhoods, economic opportunities, and accessible transportation in her East Charlotte district. She is widely known for her leadership in bringing new life and opportunities to the 69-acre Eastland Mall site, taking on this daunting task with a sustainable vision and fortitude. She is also an active member of the Environment and Transportation & Planning committees.

Ajmera is a graduate of the University of Southern California (USC) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Prior to her appointment to the Charlotte City Council, Ajmera was a change manager at TIAA and twice appointed to the Board of Commissioners for the Charlotte Housing Authority (CHA). A true public servant, Ajmera put her financial livelihood aside to focus on her representative duties fulltime.

Ajmera is a businesswoman who credits her parents for instilling strong values of hard work, education, and giving back to the community. Her family immigrated to the United States in search of better opportunities. While her family has always been rich in spirit, they came to the country with a language barrier and no money.

Today she is the first Asian-American and the youngest woman to serve on the Charlotte City Council.

Ajmera brings both business acumen and life experience to office. As an immigrant, she is personally someone who has been among our most vulnerable, but persevered to achieve the American dream. Prior to being recruited by TIAA, Ajmera worked at Yardi Systems where she managed multiple investment management implementations for their top-tier clients. Earlier in her professional career, she served as a Lead Tax Consultant at Deloitte & Touche.

Upon being appointed to City Council, Ajmera made a campaign promise not to seek reelection in District 5. She is currently running for an At-Large position to continue her progress uplifting the eastside community and all of Charlotte. Her platform includes economic opportunities regardless of socioeconomic status, investment in infrastructure, affordable housing and safe neighborhoods. Ajmera has been endorsed by business leader Hugh McColl, the Honorable Harvey Gantt, Black Political Caucus (BPC), Firefighters, AFL-CIO union members, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), MeckPAC and Equality NC, just to name a few supporters.
