Hoover Thrilled to be on the Forefront! See Why!

Hoover Board of Education member Donna Frazier was exuberant in sharing her excitement about Hoover leading the way!

In charging children to ride the bus to and from school.

Wait. What??

Yes. Listen.

Mrs. Frazier lives in Greystone, where homes for sale currently range from $235,000 to $2.8 million. (Only five  of the 72 homes were listed for less than $400,000 and 12 listed for more than $1 million.)

Perspective, anyone?


Sneaky Sneaky Sneaky – They Never Change, Do They?

Yeah. That. Item D. “Fee-Based Transportation Proposal”.

Tell the public one thing and then PRESTO CHANGE-O! Do something different! (Nothing up my sleeve….yeah, right)

Here’s the memo Superintendent Andy Craig wrote to the Board of Education about the proposal.

Here is al.com’s Jon Anderson’s article about the meeting and the fees.

And the vote? A unanimous 5 – 0 approval.

This is Your Board of Education, Hoover.

Here’s the full audio from the meeting.

A Look at Our Hoover Community – Who We Are

Here is the map of our Hoover community.  The Racial Dot Map is a visualization of 2010 Census data, with each person being depicted by one dot of one color. Many people who spoke out to save our buses, and keep them free, stated they moved to Hoover for the diversity. This is the best visual representation of that diversity that I could find. Just wanted to share it with you.
