Celeste Bayles, lifelong Homewood resident, wife, and mother has thrown her hat into the upcoming election for Homewood City Council, Ward 2 Place 2. Through her decades of experience in our bedroom community over-the-mountain, she has seen the evolution of the city from just another small town to a thriving economic and education center not rivaled in Alabama.
Through her campaign she hopes to uphold the following tenets:
- Diversity and inclusion
- Open Communication
- Creating a substantial legacy for future generations
As Ms. Bayles says, “I will promote diversity in how I vote! One of the many reasons our school system is so extraordinary is our diversity. Kids from Homewood have so much more perspective on the world than our over the mountain counterparts. I will vote to keep Homewood diverse so that all of our children get the wonderful education they deserve.”
It’s through this commitment to education, diversity, and transparency through the open release of public finance and planning documents that she separates herself from the other candidates currently seeking to perpetuate the status quo–even if their presentation suggests otherwise.
To find out more about how Ms. Bayles is trying to speak truth-to-power and change our community for the better with actions instead of promises, follow her on Instagram (@celesteforthewest) and public Facebook page where she will release more detailed information about her platform and schedule of events.
