Moore says she has her own background as an independent business person: a realtor for about 25 years and owner of a landscaping businesses since 1998.
At least one opponent has criticized Supervisors for approving millions in capital projects in recent years. Moore voted against the Greenridge Recreation Center but voted for the new South County library that will open late this year. She says between the many new computers and high-speed wi-fi, it will offer students who have slow or no Internet access at home an important resource.
Moore’s challengers in the Cave Spring District are Stan Seymour, also an Independent, and Republican George Assaid.
