Las Vegas Assemblyman John Moore once believed the only way he could serve his country was through military service. Because of this belief, he enlisted as a young man and then, after 9/11, he re-enlisted at the age of 40. He has consistently held the desire to serve the people and his country throughout his life. He admits to being human and to sometimes making poor decisions, as well as to ending up in hot water a few times. However, those are some of the experiences that have humbled him and taught him how to be persistent as well as to overcome adversity.
Moore ran for office in 2014, and winning the Las Vegas, Nevada, Assembly District 8 honor gave him new ways to be able to serve the people. He listened when they said”no” to big government and “no” to more taxes. He voted against the largest tax hike in the history of Nevada and aimed to keep his campaign promises. However, much to his chagrin, other politicians did not have the same values. Moore believes a promise made is a commitment to be kept.
Moore wants the people of Las Vegas to know that he kept his promises and remained loyal. He fought alongside other supporters against the odds, but they were overrun by legislators who were working for special interest groups and not the people.
His campaign promises remain the same, with a new goal – he plans to build a larger group of assemblymen united to fight for the people. He appreciates the communication he has received supporting his second run. Moore will continue to serve the people of Nevada when re-elected.
The Las Vegas assemblyman said, “When I ran for office, I campaigned on working across the aisle for the good of all Nevadans. I accomplished that goal. Working with Republicans to get 16 bills passed [and] Democrats to get 8 bills passed. We can do the work of the people when we are willing to work together.”
