I, Holly E.
Moore would like to announce my candidacy for the City of Trenton’s Parks and
Recreation Commission Seat. I was born and raised in Dade County and I have
lived in the city for 17 years. My husband of 17 years, Shawn Moore, is also
from Trenton and grew up down the street from Jenkins Park. We live in Edgewood
Subdivision and have two very active children- Zoie, 12, and Grant, 8. I
attended Davis School as a child, graduated from Northwest Georgia in 1992 and
attended junior college on a softball scholarship in South Georgia.
I have been a
Purchasing Specialist at IWG HPC/MinVasive for 17 years. In this role, I
purchase all items needed to manufacture products on a daily basis used in
aerospace, electrical and medical industries.
Besides being a budget-minded spender, this position requires me to
maintain documents used in customer and safety audits while maintaining
positive business relationships with a variety of vendors. This year I was
appointed as a board member for the Dade Chamber of Commerce and in my spare
time I like to plan events, spend time with family and friends and travel.
I decided to
run for this position because I love our town. I see the potential it has for
bringing in revenue and recognition for potential larger sources of revenue for
the city and county. The park hasn’t changed much over the years but when
elected my goal is to find the resources needed to meet current and future
needs of the park for our city. I believe that any positive avenue you can
offer kids to keep them busy while learning respect and responsibility will
limit the temptation to make bad choices kids face today.
I grew up
watching and playing ball at Jenkins Park as a kid and adult. I have enjoyed
coaching girls in our local recreation leagues through the years and now watch
my children and others play. There was always something going on at Jenkins
Park back in the day. As I have traveled around to numerous parks in the
southeast, I have seen what they all have to offer and Trenton is missing the
boat. Our city and county is growing and our government has to be able to meet
the needs of citizens in order to continue growth and prosperity in our
has always been an issue since I have lived in the city. As citizens and pet
owners it is our responsibility to spay and neuter our pets so that the
population doesn’t mass–produce feral animals. I will do my best to research,
implement and maintain a proper animal control procedure that benefits both
animals and citizens.
Our city may be
smaller than most but I believe it’s important to set goals and standards that
will promote our city to the best around. To achieve this I would like current
ordinances reviewed, revised and enforced to benefit city residents and attract
new business. I am very persistent and have the skills to reach the end goal in
a positive way and will do so until the job is complete. Through my job and
other experiences, I have learned to stand up for what you believe in, speak
when others can’t, be a good steward
with other people’s money and
transparent in your convictions.
It would be an
honor to work for the citizens of Trenton to move our town into the future as
the best place to live work and raise a family. I ask for your vote and on Nov.
5 in electing me as your new Parks and Recreation Commissioner for the City of
Trenton – I will help move us into the future.
