As Mayor of Hoover, I would like to welcome The Hoover Sun to our city! We are excited to have another media outlet and look forward to all the new partnerships this opportunity brings. I am honored to serve as your mayor for another four years and work with the City Council to keep Hoover moving in a positive direction.
Founded in 1967, our city has quickly grown to be the sixth largest city in Alabama. Our fast growth rate can be attributed to many factors, including the city’s ability to offer residents an exceptional quality of life that is safe, secure and affordable.
Whether you are new to Hoover or a lifelong resident, I hope you will take some time to explore all that Hoover has to offer. From cultural experiences provided by the Hoover Library Theater, to outdoor hiking and rock climbing at Moss Rock Preserve’s 350 natural acres, or a leisurely stroll through Aldridge Gardens, there’s something for everyone and every age. We have state-of-the-art police and fire departments that boast cutting edge technology, equipment and training to protect and save lives.
We have many recreational ball fields for our youth and a thriving senior center full of daily activities. Our school system offers an innovative curriculum, excellent teaching standards and outstanding facilities.All of these factors are what make Hoover the premier city in Alabama and one of the main reasons people move to Hoover.
We are home to many world-class shopping venues and great restaurants. Tour buses and out-of-town shoppers frequent Hoover and have made our city known as a shopping destination. Hoover is also home to Regions Park, and we are excited about hosting many new events at that venue in the coming year.
Hoover is fortunate to have a high level of citizen involvement and a government determined to offer its people the very best in administration and services. If you would like to get more involved, check into serving on one of our many boards, volunteer opportunities or service clubs.
With the endless opportunities, events and amenities Hoover has to offer, one can easily see why we take so much pride in our city.
