"We need to continue to be aggressive in bringing new jobs to Mt. Vernon," Moore said. "We also need to focus on revitalizing our existing neighborhoods and not just focus on new development housing. Most importantly, we need to continue to improve infrastructure through the entire city, not just those areas seeing new growth."

Moore said he wants to bring a fresh perspective to city policy.

"It is important to maintain professionalism and integrity in our city representation," Moore said. "I believe this starts with being more transparent and holding ourselves accountable to all of the citizens of Mt. Vernon. We are on a great path towards growth already. What we need is the entire community to engage int hat vision and support it wholeheartedly. Only then will Mt. Vernon regain its crown as 'the King City.'"

Moore is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who has teamed up with the parks and recreation department for the Movie in the Park at Fairmonth Park in 2010, the Fall Family Fun Day, is a member of the Parks and Recreation Board, co-founder developing New Attitude (DNA); sponsor of Summer Splash; the Ride to Remember all-boys trip to the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis; the Young Ladies Leadership Lunch, parntering with Crossroads Community Hospital Health Woman program; a member of the Mt. Vernon Hall of Fame Committee, and co-chair of the Keep Home Rule campaign.

"I promise that I will serve Mt. Vernon with dignity, honor and respect," Moore said. "I am asking you to let me represent you on City Council."
