Press Release

Hoover, AL. – Republican Charlotte Meadows announced today that she would be seeking the Republican nomination for State Board of Education, District 3

“Education in Alabama is my driving passion. For too long we have suffered at the bottom of national rankings,” Meadows said. “Obviously, what we have been doing the last 30 years has not been working. It is time for a new direction on the Board of Education.”

Charlotte Meadows is a former representative in the Alabama Legislature and former member of the Montgomery Public Schools Board of Education. She currently serves as the board chair of LEAD Academy, a public Charter School. Meadows has extensive ties from all over District 3. She represented the Montgomery portion for 3 years, was raised in Montgomery, spent summers in Elmore County, and now lives in Shelby County.

“It is more important than ever that parents have a say in their children’s education,” Meadows added. “The woke indoctrination of our society is very dangerous and we need vigilant warriors protecting what our children are being exposed to in our schools and libraries.”

Charlotte Meadows is married to Dr. Allen Meadows and is a mother of three and grandmother of three.

“I am a strong proponent of school choice, and not just in affluent zip codes. We need to ensure that all kids have the tools they need to succeed in life,” Meadows concluded. “Changing the focus on the State Board of Education will be the first step to improving our state’s education crisis.”

The district includes all of Bibb, Chilton, Coosa, Elmore and Shelby Counties as well as the southern portion of Jefferson County and portions of Montgomery and Talladega Counties. Stephanie Bell has been in this seat for almost 30 years.

The Republican Primary will be held March 5, 2024.
