VoteVets Endorses Art Moore for Congress

AUBURN, CA – VoteVets.org PAC, the national veterans group with over 400,000 supporters, is today endorsing Art Moore for Congress, for the seat currently held by Rep. Tom McClintock. 

“Congressman McClintock fell off the rightward cliff a long time ago, and continues to move further to the right,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran, and Chairman of VoteVets.org.  “Art Moore will bring balance back to the seat, because he’s less concerned about pleasing a fringe base, and more concerned about trying to represent his constituents.  It’s a spirit of service that’s long been a part of Art’s life, and that’s why we’re endorsing him, today.” 

According to his biography, after high school Art Moore attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a field of study in Environmental Engineering. Commissioned as an infantry officer, Art has a combined fourteen years of Active Duty and National Guard service, including thirty months deployed overseas. 

Following 9/11, Art deployed to the Haifa Street section of Baghdad, where he was second in command of a 200-Soldier infantry company, and was awarded the Bronze Star. Two years later he deployed as chief of logistics of an 800-Soldier light infantry battalion. Most recently, Art deployed as chief of operations of a 430-Soldier light infantry battalion performing multinational peacekeeping operations in the Sinai, Egypt. 

Art currently lives in Roseville, CA and is on leave from Deloitte Consulting where he oversaw cost and efficiency improvements for federal government clients in the U.S. Intelligence Community. 

Founded in 2006, the mission of VoteVets.org Political Action Committee is to elect Veterans to public office, with a focus on Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, and hold public officials accountable for their words and actions that impact America’s 21st century troops and veterans. Though VoteVets.org PAC is non-partisan, candidates it backs must support VoteVets.org’s core mission and beliefs.
