Councilmember Martin A. Moore
First, welcome to my council web page. Over the last two years, I have enjoyed being your partner at City Hall.
I continue to be focused on creating greater accountability, ending homelessness and advocating for those that are voiceless and continuing to invest in our City so that we can create a strong economy. We have a great city with a promising future and I look forward to working with the public, my colleagues on the council and with the Mayoral Administration to continue on building a positive future for this great city.
If there is anything that I can do to be of service to you, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you from the bottom of my heart in giving me this opportunity to serve you at City Hall.
Councilmember Moore’s Statement on the Rep. Roger Freeman Memorial Award Announcement (12/7/16)
"I am pleased to announce that the Diversity Commission has been working hard to continue to honor the legacy of the late, Rep. Roger Freeman. I am proud that our city has gotten behind this award which recognizes young leaders who have found their voice by fighting for justice, diversity, equality and being a servant leader. As long as I am the people's Councilmember, I look forward to working with the Diversity Commissions and supporting our community by recognizing our young scholars who embody the values and ideals of a beloved man who has taught us so much."
Councilmember Moore's statement on the latest gun violence in our community (5/10/16)
The violence that has occurred recently in our community is on all our minds and, while it breaks my heart that this is taking place in our great town, please know that your City Councilmembers and Mayor are focused on the issue. As your Councilmember, I will be working hard to solve this problem by investing in our youth, identifying ways to address drug-related violence, and carefully considering increasing our public safety resources as well. Our population is growing and I want to be certain that we have enough police officers to keep our community safe.

Martin was adopted at the age of eight from Sofia, Bulgaria and arrived in Federal Way in 1992. His parents, both educators, instilled in him the importance of putting others before yourself and giving back to your community.
Martin attended Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church, where he was an Altar Server and now attends Saint Vincent DePaul Parish. He attended Federal Way public school before enrolling in Saint Martin’s University, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
Following his college graduation, Martin returned to Federal Way and continued his community service as a Federal Way Parks and Recreation Commissioner since 2007. In addition, he served in the Federal Way Public Schools AmeriCorps program from 2009 to 2011, where he tutored, led after-school programs, and helped at-risk students towards the goal of attending college.
Martin is a very proud uncle to a three-year-old nephew, Milo, and a niece, Rowan. He wants to make Federal Way a place where dreams can come true for their generation, just as it was for a child from Bulgaria years ago.
Martin is married to Sarah (August 2016) and is currently working on his master degree in school guidance counseling through City University of Seattle.
