ATTENTION: Share your ideas with Colton in the Northwest Georgia Quality of Life Survey, here.

Being a State Representative has allowed our District to be recognized and respected across the State in ways I never thought were possible. Bringing this pace and progress to Washington D.C. would expand our impact to more families and businesses across Northwest Georgia and our United States

Since November 2018 we have accomplished an incredible amount for our district. With unemployment at a historic low of 3.3%, more progress has been made in this time for the people of Northwest Georgia than any other point in time. 

As your Representative, I will continue to bring a fast pace, level head and strong voice to every single issue brought forward, even those difficult to discuss.

It has been a great privilege meeting each of my fellow legislators who represent all 10.4 million Georgian citizens, even those across the aisle. Today, my team and I reaffirm our promise to each of you and my colleagues to represent the District with open minds, open hearts and a strong voice. During this upcoming 2020 session, we will continue making District 1 Georgia's best district without regard to the status quo representation our people have had for so very long.

BLOOMBERG: GA Rep. Colton Moore Strongly Considers U.S. Congressional Run

“Each year I traverse the globe selling bulldozers, excavators and cranes at auction. Being a world-class auctioneer, similar to a successful U.S. Congressman, requires an incredible amount of skill, focus and awareness. Over 50% of the legislation Congress votes on involves international affairs. Few politicians have this international experience before arriving in D.C.,”

Moore said. This comes on the heels of the Young Americans for Liberty, led by Mr. Cliff Maloney Jr., featuring Rep. Colton Moore in a video about the Georgia’s state budget. The video has now been viewed nearly 700,000 times.

Should Moore be elected to Congress he would likely join other vocal Republicans in the House Freedom Caucus with Georgia Congressman Jody Hice (R-10), Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan (R-4) and North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows (R-11). Read the full article.
