“He sat by while our hospitals became a monopoly and this has cost us greatly,” Moore wrote. “I aim to help right this wrong. I am in support of creating a hospital authority which would help regulate Ballad Health and will raise awareness about the need for its establishment.”
Moore said he’s a veteran who served as a military police officer in the U.S. Army and supports giving the military a raise.
He said he supports the Affordable Care Act, a woman’s right to choose, same-sex marriage, legalization of marijuana and term limits.
“I am not in favor of building walls. Ask yourself: Would Jesus build a wall? That is all,” Moore said. “Family separation at the border is cruel on so many levels and needs to be ended immediately.”
Moore noted the homeless issue will be a top priority for him.
“I’m not a yard sign guy,” he said. “You won’t see my campaign plastered onto billboards, and the radio will not be bombarded by annoying advertising. I am hoping for word of mouth help in gaining traction and getting the word out I am a viable candidate.”
