TO HONOR JOHN R. MOORE, JR., CITY MANAGER FOR THE CITY OF ANDERSON, FOR HIS THIRTY-NINE YEARS OF DISTINGUISHED PUBLIC SERVICE AND TO OFFER BEST WISHES FOR A SATISFYING AND REWARDING RETIREMENT.
Whereas, beginning in 1976, the City of Anderson enjoyed the benefit of the dedication, experience, and leadership of John R. Moore, Jr., who on December 31, 2015, retired after thirty-nine years of outstanding public service, the past twenty-five as city manager; and
Whereas, after graduation from T.L. Hanna High School, John further prepared himself for his life's work by earning a bachelor's degree in financial management from Clemson University, followed by a master's degree in business administration from the University of South Carolina; and
Whereas, having begun his thirty-nine-year career with the City of Anderson in 1976, John Moore took up his duties as Anderson's finance director in 1983 and served in that capacity until 1991. In that same year, he was named city manager; and
Whereas, during the course of his career, he proved himself a worthy colleague to his associates in the International City Management Association; South Carolina City/County Managers Association, which he served as president from 1999 to 2000; South Carolina Economic Development Forum; and I-85 Economic Development; and
Whereas, he finds strength for his labors in the firm support of his family: his wife, Becky; and his children, Denton and Rebekah. As a man of faith, John finds spiritual strength in worship at St. John's United Methodist Church; and
Whereas, John Moore believes strongly in personal involvement with his community, and his convictions have led him to serve that community, as well as the larger community of South Carolina, in several capacities. These include service as a member of the Chamber of Commerce, YMCA, Anderson County Golf Championships and Junior Golf Scholarship Committee, South Carolina Golf Association Board of Directors, United Way, and Innovate Anderson; and
Whereas, during John's well-earned retirement, the House hopes he will find himself more frequently able to indulge in exercise on the greens and improve his already formidable 5 handicap at golf; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives is grateful for the legacy of consistent commitment and leadership John R. Moore, Jr., has bestowed on the people of South Carolina, particularly those of Anderson County. The members take great pleasure in wishing him all the best as he enters retirement, trusting he will experience much enjoyment in the more leisurely pace of the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, honor John R. Moore, Jr., city manager for the City of Anderson, for his thirty-nine years of distinguished public service and offer best wishes for a satisfying and rewarding retirement.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to John R. Moore, Jr.
