Hoover To Run Again
Hoover is a native of Fulton County who graduated from Mc- Connellsburg High School, Hagerstown Junior College with an Associate of Arts degree, Slippery Rock College with a B.S. in education, Shippensburg State College with a master’s degree in eduction and Western Maryland University with his principal’s papers. He retired as elementary principal from Forbes Road after 33 years of service.
During his first term as county commissioner, Hoover served on the following boards: Southern Alleghenies Planning and Development, Center for Community Action, Area Agency on Aging, Solid Waste Authority, MHMR, Fulton County Center for Families and Fulton County Food Basket. Also during his tenure, the commissioners took on the tremendous task of refurbishing the county buildings in a massive rebuilding project. At this time, the project is three-fourths completed. Future county plans include completing the building project and digitizing county files to eliminate paper waste and better utilize space.
Hoover would like the opportunity to see the building project completed. He would also like to see the implementation of town meetings continued. Although attendance was sometimes meager at the various sites, Hoover feels they have been a worthwhile means of keeping in touch with county residents. He believes that long-range planning and funding for projects are essential to move Fulton County forward in the 21st century.
Hoover is the son of Mary Hoover and the late Rev. Dr. David R. Hoover. He is married to the former Janice Cutchall. They are the parents of two children, Mary K. Seville and David R. Hoover III. The Hoovers have three grandchildren: Cody, Leah and Alexis.
