Mayor Andy Moore Files For Reelection

Joined by his family, Smithfield Mayor Andy Moore filed for reelection Friday afternoon.

“I’m excited about the possibility of representing the citizens of Smithfield again as their Mayor,” Moore said.

“The Council has accomplished a lot over the last two years. Some examples include reducing electrical rates, paving Venture Drive, as well as, numerous residential streets, increasing our General Fund balance to over 40%, purchasing property for a new West Smithfield Fire Department, moving forward with the Booker Dairy Road Extension Project, and revising our Unified Development Ordinance.”

“We have also been able to make improvements to our park system such as updates at Smith Collins Park in East Smithfield, Civitan Little League Field in South Smithfield, Gertrude B. Johnson Park in West Smithfield, beginning construction of the new Miracle League Field and Inclusion Park at the Community Park in North Smithfield.  These are just a few examples that we have been able to accomplish, while maintaining our current property tax rate. Smithfield is set for growth, and we are ready.  I’m looking forward to continuing to work to make Smithfield the best place in Johnston County to work, live, play and stay.”

The filing period will remain open until Noon on Friday, July 21st.
