Smith understands HOW to HELP properly.

Smith is actually one of the very few councilman who has truly protected and served the city he is representing. I believe that says a lot. He also understands that we can't just pull money out of thin air from other areas to fund our schools like that without it drastically affecting the place the money comes from. Especially when you're talking 7 million. I agree with him that working with everyone is the best way to find the best solution, not to just spit out ideas without thinking of the long term effects it could have on other areas.

Hoover Needs Finance People for Growth

Gene Smith has been a part of the City of Hoover for a long time. From being a firefighter to now a city councilman. His financial background is really what Hoover needs since it is growing so fast and maintaining growth like that demands financially sound people in order to keep all areas properly funded etc.
No one is perfect, but I believe Gene is a considerably better candidate with his knowledge and involvement in Hoover and the length of time he's been doing it.

"He owns short-term loan companies with 18 locations in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee"

I'd like to know the name of the "short-term loan companies" Mr. Smith owns.

The City's Needs

Schools are, in fact, one of the City's needs. To separate them as something outside of the core needs or responsibilities of the City and it's citizens speaks volumes as to Councilman Smith's deaf ear regarding the priorities of the citizens he was elected to represent. Furthermore it reinforces the reason that new blood is needed throughout City Hall.
