A LITTLE BIT ABOUT GARY MOORE
Christian with a Biblical Worldview, Conservative, and proud American
Born and raised as a young farmer and sharecropper in Unionville and Eagleville, and grew crops, livestock, vegetables, and hay at age nine in College Grove. I attended College Grove High School and graduated in 1974. I attended and graduated from MTSU in 1979 with a BS in Agriculture-Plant and Soil Science. Obtained employment with USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service immediately after college and finished a 37-year career in 2013. My position was leading farm conservation policy and funding for all landowners in seven counties across the state. This travel with leadership abilities while supporting my family took me away from Williamson County as a citizen. Still, I returned home often to visit my parents, family, and friends until 2013, when I moved to the Riverview Park/Forrest Crossing subdivision in Franklin with my wife, Martha. We have a combined number of children: one son, two daughters, and two grandsons. I have been employed with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture for the last five years as a plant inspector, with retirement to be announced in January 2024. Martha had a 38-year career as a surgical registered nurse and four years as a hospice nurse, retiring from Aveanna Hospice of Franklin in 2021. We now lead a World Outreach Church small group Bible study in our home while running for the City of Franklin alderman-at-large position. I have been and will always be that man with a grassroots upbringing and knowing where I come from.
