Federal Way City Council member Martin Moore on Tuesday announced he will run for Pos. 1 in his campaign to represent the 30th Legislative District in the Washington House of Representatives.
“I look forward to working in Olympia on behalf of my neighbors in the 30th District, and I’m excited to do so from Position 1,” Moore stated in a campaign press release.
The current representative in Pos. 1, Mike Pellicciotti, will not seek re-election to the seat as he runs for state treasurer.
Moore, an immigrant who spent the first eight years of his life as an orphan in Bulgaria, has lived in the 30th District since he was adopted in 1992. He has represented his community on the Federal Way City Council since his election in 2013 and his re-election in 2017, and he previously worked in Olympia on behalf of the 30th District as the legislative aide to the late Rep. Roger Freeman.
Moore is an independent/Republican who claims he has a strong record of working to uplift working families, senior citizens, youth, people with disabilities and low-income residents, and of doing so within responsible budgets, according to his campaign.
