District 18 State Representative Tim Moore announced on Monday, Dec. 14 that he has officially filed for re-election.
From Elizabethtown, Moore, who represents Grayson and Hardin Counties in the Kentucky State House of Representatives, issued the following statement on Monday regarding his filing for re-election in the 2016 election cycle:
Today, I had the privilege of filing the paperwork to run for State Representative from the 18th District. Joining me was my son, Caleb, who is home on leave from the Air Force Academy. Co-signing my official “Notification and Declaration” paperwork was my daughter, Eliza Kate, who just voted in her first election this November.
My children have grown into young men and women participating in the election process. They have been eager and able campaigners and have practiced service before self themselves. A determination to build an even better Commonwealth for them motivated me to step forward in the first place.
I am particularly grateful that my son and daughter were the co-signers of my filing paperwork this year. They represent the bright and promising future that Kentucky must realize. Every young Kentuckian aspires to the same things their parents hope for them: a good-paying job, a safe and secure place to raise their own family, and a community where people care for one another and build more together than they could achieve individually. The 18th District is just such a place.
As I’ve gotten to know people throughout the 18th District, I’ve been grateful for the values and vision we clearly share. I am honored to add my voice to theirs and represent them in the Kentucky House of Representatives.
Winds of change and optimism are blowing at the state Capitol. I look forward to helping steer Kentucky in a positive direction and will welcome the privilege of continuing to serve the people of Grayson and Hardin County in the General Assembly. Together, I am convinced that we will realize the brighter tomorrow we are capable of achieving.
