Meet the Council

Julie Eiselt, mayor pro tem

Mayor Pro Tem Julie Eiselt grew up near Milwaukee, Wisconsin as one of four children.  She attended public schools, including college at Indiana University where she received a BA in Spanish, with minors in French and Business.  Julie went on to receive a Master’s degree in international management at The American Graduate School of International Management.  Her career in international banking and manufacturing allowed her to live in London, Dallas, Milwaukee and Miami, while traveling extensively to Latin America and Eastern Europe.  Julie and her husband Tom moved to Charlotte in 1998, to work and raise their three children:  Jack, Joe and Kate.


Julie had never envisioned a role in public office until a man tried to abduct her at gunpoint in 2007.  This led to her found Neighbors for a Safer Charlotte, to advocate for court-system resources and policies to make all Charlotte residents safer.  Julie then ran for Charlotte City Council in 2015 and is in her second term on the council, serving at-large and as Mayor Pro Tem.  She chairs the Community Safety committee, and vice-chairs the Transportation and Planning committee. In the community, Julie serves as a board member for the Blumenthal Performing Arts and The Relatives.
