The Homewood City Council is considering calling for a referendum so residents can consider remodeling their city government.
In 2022, former Navy seal and law enforcement officer Jared Hudson narrowly lost to the incumbent Democrat Mark Pettway in the election for Jefferson County Sheriff. Now, Hudson is encouraging conservatives to get out and vote in a special election later this month that will determine which party holds the majority in the Jefferson County Commission.
On July 18, Vestavia, Mountain Brook, Homewood and Hoover residents will select the newest member of the Jefferson County Commission in a special election. Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Mike Bolin says he’s the man for the job.
Last year was Birmingham’s most violent year since the early 1990s, and several sources have ranked the city one of the most unsafe in the country. Meanwhile, Birmingham suburbs like Vestavia Hills and Mountian Brook had considerably low crime rates in 2022, and Vestavia even ranked among the safest places to live in the United States.
The shooter in the 2022 Vestavia Hills church shooting has pled guilty to three counts of capital murder and will serve the rest of his life behind bars.
A former Vestavia Hills High School student was caught squatting in dormitories at Stanford University after pretending to be a student for over a year.
Alabama is home to 565 public high schools, each ranging from under 400 students to almost 3,000.
Churches across the state are looking to heighten their security in light of the recent shooting in Vestavia Hills
