Who is Curt Posey?
I am a lifelong (39 years), third generation, resident of Hoover and a proud product of the Hoover City School system. I am the grandson of a local minister from Rocky Ridge. I am the son of parents who worked to get Bluff Park/Shades Mountain annexed into Hoover in 1980, and fought for the creation of our school system in 1987-88. I am a husband who has been marrried to my best friend for 13 years. I am a father of two wonderful children (Reagan age 8 and Wilson age 5). I am a Buc, and attended Berry High School from 1991-1994. I was a member of Hoover High's 1st graduating class in 1995. I am a Blazer and graduated from UAB in 2001 with a BA in Communications. I am an ATΩ and serve my chapter as the chairman of our board of trustees and recruitment advisor. I am a Hunter Streeter and teach 2yr old Sunday School. I am a performer and enjoy helping my daughter's ballet company (Birmingham Ballet) by pretending to know how to dance. I am a U6 soccer coach for Hoover Socccer Club's Bluff Park area team. I am a patriot and proud past-president of the Cahaba-Coosa Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.
Most of all, I am servant and want to use my talents to help my city and its people.
What Do I Believe in?
There is a line from a song by John Lennon that best describes my core beliefs when it comes to public service. The line is "I tell them there's no problems...only solutions." I believe that the solution to any problem facing the city can be found through open and honest communication between city leaders and their constituents. Often times you have to look at a question from multiple angles to find the answer. I am a strong believer in collaboration. City departments are not silos, and we can achieve more when we work together toward a common goal. I am honest to a fault, because I believe that if you are open and honest with others, they will be open and honest with you. Most of all, I am a worker. When I believe that something needs to be accomplished for the best interests of the city, I am going to work to see that the task is completed. I don't think anything of quality comes from cutting corners. If we want to be the best, we have to work at it every day.
