A pillar in the community, a naming in his honor

Statement from Alderman Rainey on Dr. Lester Carter - May 17, 2018

As we work tirelessly to improve the health of the community, let us also take a moment to pay homage to one of our forbearers in this fight: Dr. Lester Carter who founded his pharmacy in 1968. For 50 years, the patrons of Carter Drug Store have been the recipients of courtesy, respect and most of all health expertise. That is why I am thrilled to lead a street sign naming in Dr. Carter’s honor for the 2400 block of W. Burleigh St., where his pharmacy has stood as a cornerstone for community health. With five decades in business, Dr. Carter has served multiple generations in the community. And with this honorary street sign naming, multiple generations can continue to remember this pillar in the community.
