Retired Educator and Republican leader aims to oust Rep John Whitmer and restore fiscal responsibility to Kansas Legislature
J.C. Moore is seeking the Republican nomination for State Representative in District 93, which includes Clearwater, Cheney, Viola, and parts of Haysville, Wichita, Goddard, and other communities surrounding the district. Moore aims to oust incumbent Rep John Whitmer in the August primary. Moore said, “My main goal is to restore fiscal responsibility to Kansas, which means managing our resources wisely and investing in our future. My education, teaching experience, and community service have uniquely qualified me to serve Kansas.”
J.C. grew up on a farm and oil lease in rural Oklahoma where he spent time hunting, fishing, and developing a love of the outdoors. He graduated from Mound Valley High School where he participated in sports and 4-H activities. He received a master’s degree from OSU, a doctorate from KSU, and he has publications and presentations in molecular structure, science education, and professional ethics. He taught physics and chemistry for 38 years, 25 of those at Newman University and Friends University where he served at times as department chair, division chair, faculty president, and on many committees, notably as chairman of pre-med, curriculum, and faculty evaluation committees.
“I firmly believe that the best investment we can make in our future is to educate our children and young adults. My opponent has squandered the state resources and embarrassed the district long enough,” Moore stated. J.C. has served as a YMCA volunteer, adult 4-H leader, cosponsor of a Young Republican chapter, and a Sunday school leader. He has been a judge at numerous science competitions, science bowls, and science fairs. He taught twelve summers in Newman’s Investigative Summer Science Program and was director of the Friend’s Dreyfus Chemistry Camp, both designed to attract students into science and healthcare professions.
J.C. is currently a member of the NRA, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Pachyderm Club. He has three children and is committed to making sure Kansas remains a great place for his nine grandchildren, yours, and for all future generations.
