Pasco Commissioner Mike Moore seeks re-election



Pasco Commission Chairman Mike Moore filed for re-election Tuesday, to seek a second term for the District 2 seat based in central Pasco.

Moore, 46, released the following statement in announcing his re-election bid:

‘‘To build a small business or achieve other success in any area of life, you must set goals and then work tirelessly to deliver results,” said Commissioner Moore. “Over the past two years, our community has set goals and we’ve worked together to accomplish them.

“We’ve worked tirelessly to improve our economy and bring good paying jobs to Pasco County. We’ve accelerated improvements to our county’s roads, parks and infrastructure. We’ve funded public safety so our residents are safe and secure.

“We’ve targeted blighted areas and we are improving those areas, benefiting our entire community. We’ve accomplished all of this while working to keep taxes low, reduce wasteful spending, right-size our local government and improve responsiveness and customer service.

“While there is much to be proud of, there is still a great deal we still must do. With your support, I’ll continue to fight for our shared principles while helping lead Pasco County to an even better and brighter future.”

Moore, the current chairman, was elected to the commission in 2014. He currently sits on Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, Circuit Conflict-Sixth Judicial Circuit, Dependency Drug Treatment Court Planning Steering Committee, Government Operations Committee, Insurance Selection Committee, Public Safety Coordination Council, Habitat for Humanity, CARES, the Boys and Girls Club and is chairman of the Homeless Advisory Board.

Moore is a small-business owner and resides in the Seven Oaks area of Wesley Chapel with his wife and three children.
