Party: Independent Republican
Moore’s primary election night statement: “I’m humbled beyond words by the support the voters in the 30th Legislative District have shown me, my campaign, and my message that elected officials first and foremost represent their communities, not political special interests or big donors. Voters are sending a message that we need to put people over politics, and that’s a banner I will be proud to carry from the 30th Legislative District all the way to Olympia.
“I’ve lived here since I was adopted from Bulgaria at 8 years old. I went to our local public schools and was taught by the dedicated, compassionate public educators of the Federal Way Public Schools. I trick-or-treated with neighbors who are impacted by Olympia’s decisions. I bought a house, met my wife, and am excited to raise my children right here where I grew up.
“As a councilmember, I’ve fought for our communities. As your state representative, I’ll use my experience, my passion, and my dedication to keep fighting for everyone – and I’ll do it with Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and anyone else who agrees that we can put people over politics and find solutions for the families and small businesses of the 30th Legislative District.
“I want to again express my deepest gratitude to the voters of Federal Way, Pacific, Auburn, Algona, Milton, and Des Moines. Thank you to those who voted for me, and to those who didn’t, I extend an invitation to get to know me, learn about my background and priorities, and join the thousands of supporters who believe in real change and compromise in Olympia.
“Thank you to all the candidates who ran in this election. I look forward to a spirited exchange of ideas over the next three months. And finally, thank you to all our dedicated volunteers that have helped tirelessly to spread our campaign message and have given up so much of their time.”
