On his website, Moore highlights the following issues:

  • Economic development
  • Quality education from Pre-K to College
"My top education priorities:
  1. Providing teachers with support - We must value our teachers
  2. Meeting the demands of children - Preparing students for a "New Ecomony"
  3. Fully funding education - Not cents by dollars
  4. Community engagement - It takes all of us
  5. Innovations in teach and learning - Teaching a new age
  • Accessible and affordable healthcare
  • Safe neighborhoods, towns, and cities"[3]


Moore was named the 2007-08 Outstanding Young Lawyer of Mississippi by the Mississippi Bar Young Lawyers Division, and was the first African-American ever to receive the award.
