Hoover Forward

Mr. Miller,

It has been alleged that you're behind the Hoover Forward Facebook page that is strongly in opposition of the mayor's proposal, even though the mayor has not presented a proposal yet. If it is your page, would you mind putting you name on it. Nothing wrong with people exercising their 1st Amendment rights. Everything wrong when they don't have the guts to put their name on it.

Proof of Allegations

Don,

I have been following your website and Facebook page since the onset and there seems to the something missing. Where is the proof to back up these claims? You are accusing the Mayor and all & council members of serious ethics violations under the opens meeting act. Surely, you have a source or two that you could quote to help the rest of us understand. I attended last night's meeting and heard nothing of a tax increase. I plan on attending Monday night's as well because I hope that someone on either side can explain why these accusations are being presented by you to the masses. All I ask is that if your claims are valid, share it with the citizens of Hoover. Bring it to the light. If you can't do that, then I have a hard time believing the same folks who share with us the entire council packet on Facebook would suddenly turn against the city.
