Russell Moore was elected to the City Council District V position on April 3, 2018.
After four years in the navy, Councilmember Moore worked five years in the Communications Center and then forty-two years with the St. Joseph Fire Department before retiring in January 2018. He is married with children.
Russell feels that St. Joseph is coming back to life, slowly but surely and, like most of the residents, wants his children and grandchildren to be proud of where they live. His message to the community is, "Let's all work together to make our city the best place to live in Missouri."
Councilmember Moore hopes to improve the appearance of St. Joseph, help in the effort to reduce crime, stimulate economic growth, and create solutions to manage unsafe and unsightly buildings that have been neglected by owners.
Councilmember Moore is the City Council Public Safety Committee representative.
