Republican Tim Moore of Farwell was state representative for Michigan's 97th District. Moore resigned from office on August 6, 2010 to become the Farwell Elementary school principal. Moore was conflicted about remaining in office until December, but found that Michigan's constitution prohibits holding public offices simultaneously.

Following high school, he earned a business administration degree from Ferris State University in 1989. He married Andrea in 1999. They have three boys, T.J., Brennan and Nikolas.
