Issues

Campaign issues

2014

Moore's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Job creation

  • Excerpt: "I have been a consistent voice in the Legislature to protect taxpayers and free businesses to hire. We need to promote opportunities for citizens to create and grow businesses of their own and foster a climate that will attract out of state businesses. Long term, we must make sure our children and grandchildren have the education they need to compete in this economy."

Ensuring quality education

  • Excerpt: "I firmly believe education must be a top priority if North Carolina is to continue growing and be competitive. An educated workforce attracts higher paying jobs and improves the per capita income of our State. This can be done by giving citizens options so each of us can choose the opportunities best suited for our children."

Safer communities

  • Excerpt: "I will work with the business community, senior groups, faith based organizations, community leaders and law enforcement to tackle issues facing our communities."
