Moore seeking another term as Franklin Probate Judge

#222222;">My name is Barry Moore and I am seeking re-election to the office of Franklin County Probate Judge. This is a position I have come to respect and enjoy over the past 11 years because of my ability to help my fellow citizens as a member of our local government.

#222222;">Because I have lived in Franklin County all my life and my roots run deep in this area, I have the honor of knowing many of you personally. During my time serving as Probate Judge, I have had the opportunity to meet those I didn’t already know. But for those who may not know me or why I am seeking re-election for this position, let me tell you why this is more than just a “job” for me.


#222222;">As Chairman of the Franklin County Commission, I will continue working with federal and state officials to secure funds for the county roads and bridges; I have seen the real-life impact these projects can have. Through the historical Alabama Transportation and Rehabilitation Improvement Program (ATRIP), the Franklin County Commission was able to work together with the city’s mayors and municipal governments, as well as with the city and county school systems, to secure $12 million dollars in federal funding for necessary road and bridge projects throughout the county and its cities. School buses are able to travel easier and safer routes, residents are dodging less pot holes and driving on smoother roads, businesses have gained necessary turn and access lanes through Industrial Access grants. Other projects were completed through Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and Community Development Block Grants that we were able to secure. It’s been great seeing how much these grants have helped our citizens. I want more time to continue and complete many of these projects that have already been started and embark on new projects as well. 


#222222;">In the area of law enforcement, I will continue to support funding to ensure our hardworking men and women will be able to operate efficiently to protect the law abiding citizens of our county. I genuinely care about the safety of our citizens and I believe in our law enforcement and appreciate what they do. 


#222222;">When it comes to economic development, I will continue to work hard to support our existing businesses and industries while actively pursuing new opportunities that will benefit our citizens. I am extremely proud of the new jobs our county has seen during my tenure, including jobs at IHP, Southern Homes, Franklin Structures, Mar Jac Poultry and many other businesses that have expanded. There is more work to do in the creation of jobs, and I want to continue to be part of that so our citizens can support and raise their families here and truly make Franklin County their home. 


#222222;">The Probate Office will continue to provide friendly, fast and efficient service to our customers because I believe it is important to treat those who come in our office the way we would want to be treated if we were in the same position. And as Probate Judge, I will make fair and unbiased decisions within the statutes of the law to protect the rights and estates of the citizens of Franklin County. I believe it’s important for our citizens to have someone fair and knowledgeable to preside over these situations, and I am certain my tenure over the past 11 years reflects this. 


#222222;">As Probate Judge I will use conservative values and common sense principles while executing my duties and responsibilities. I will continue to be a dependable and diligent official, and I will continue to make it a priority to represent the working men and women of Franklin County by listening to their concerns and trying my best to resolve any issues when possible.  


#222222;">I have been married to Deedra Seale for 25 years and we have a 17-year-old daughter, Ashton. I graduated from the University of North Alabama in 1990 with a degree in Business Management. I served in the Alabama National Guard for 23 years and served one year on active duty in Iraq. I worked with HART Machine Tool, Inc. for over 15 years as Office Manager before beginning my tenure as Probate Judge in Franklin County in 2007.


#222222;">Being Probate Judge is more than just a job for me – it’s a way to give back to a community I’ve been part of my entire life. I would very much appreciate your support for the Republican nomination during the June 5, 2018 primary.
