About Brad

Hello, I’m Brad Host.

When asked what I love most about our city, the answer is simple: the people. For years I have walked our peaceful, tree-lined streets saying hello to neighbors along the way. Over time, many of those conversations have blossomed into cherished friendships.

It’s easy to take what we have in Birmingham for granted. But, to ensure the best qualities of our city are maintained, we need citizens willing to contribute their time and energy toward stewardship of the community. That is why I served two terms on the school board and later co-founded the Birmingham Education Foundation.

The next City Commission will be tasked with adopting our city’s first new master plan in 40 years. It’s critically important to me that homeowner concerns be considered first during this process which will include changes to neighborhood zoning.  

Unfortunately, there has often been a disconnect between residents and city government. In fact—twice in the last five years—voters have rejected special election proposals with overwhelming majorities. I will work to reconnect voters with city hall.

I hope you will vote to elect me as your voice on Tuesday, November 5th.
