Published 9:28 am Tuesday, March 11, 2008

David Moore, of the Coopers Gap Community is asking for all citizens to elect him county commissioner. He says he wants to be a voice for all the citizens of Polk County. &bsp;

&dquo;I want to be a conservative spender of taxpayer&squo;s money. I&squo;m willing to support lowering our tax rate which will let our citizens keep some of their hard earned money.&dquo; Moore notes that progress in securing water rights on the Green River is a necessity to preserve water for our citizens.

&dquo;As your commissioner, I will continue to work to see this is completed. We must control growth in order to prserve our rural heritage, slopes and mountain streams.

&dquo;As a current member of the visioning committee I would like to see some long range plans in place based on the survey results. Our citizens have spoke and as commissioners we need to respond.&dquo;

Moore, a graduate of Polk Central High School, believes we have one of the best school systems in Western North Carolina.

&dquo;I will work very close with the board of education to ensure we provide our students the best possible education.&dquo;

&bsp;He is married to the former Lorraine Bailey of Sunny View and they have two children, Justin and Stacey. Moore is a member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church where he is the assistant music director and former youth Sunday School teacher.
