John F Hoover
After 25 plus years of community service, John Hoover is running for a seat on the Council of the Borough of Madison as a write-in candidate. He retired from professional project management, organizational development, and process improvement in early 2009. He has taught an applicable reengineering methodology and manageed projects around the world. He has lived in Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and Mumbai.
A Republican, Hoover is currently the President of the Board of Health in Madison. In this role, Hoover has reshaped the Department of Health over the past two and a half years, including replacing the Health Officer and the Registrar in a 3-month period. John is very active in the Madison Rotary Club, including being the Liaison to the Madison High School Interact Club. MHS Interact has 50 members that raise funds for international and community service needs. Additionally, Hoover volunteers with Bridges Outreach, which packages and delivers food and clothes to homeless in Newark and New York City, and he is a volunteer with the Senior Cents program of Morris County Family Services Agency. He has also volunteered with Morris Habitat, and the Raptor Trust. His commitment to public service dates back 25 years to his time living in San Francisco. There John served as volunteer President of the Family Service Agency of San Francisco, on the Board of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Board of the Bay Area Red Cross, and was Portfolio Chairman at United Way of the Bay Area. “My sense of community is a deep seeded commitment to people….to helping others become more self-sufficient. The same applies to Madison. The Borough needs to be an initiator, a source of revenue and service. Just as the Health Department is a supplier of services for a fee to 5 other municipalities, and growing, we need to change our paradigm. It is time to focus on revenue and provide a defined set of needed services at reasonable, minimal cost.” Hoover moved to Madison over 12 years ago, primarily to be closer to his two sons and a daughter, and 8 grahdcholdren. He thought Madison was beautiful and had all needed services, education facilities, fine restaurants, churches, medical facilities, and fabulous commute into The City. It was not until he lived here that he truly learned of the value that is Madison. He became more and more involved in community services, and when he retired in early 2009, he dove in and immersed himself in participating as much as possible in supporting and doing. Hoover’s three Madison grandsons attend public schools and have participated at all levels in athletic activities, and boy scouts. His son, John T.  and daughter-in-law Susan researched cities and towns in the tri-state area 20years ago, and chose Madison because of the quality of education, the nearby medical facilities, the beauty of the Borough and surrounding communities, the ease of commute into New York, and because of the quality of public services.
