Moore worked hard to make sure community residents of all economic circumstances benefited from the development that occurred in the 49th Ward during the real estate boom. Working closely with the Chicago Urban League, Moore secured jobs for local residents on some of the neighborhood’s publicly funded projects, such as the Howard El Station redevelopment. Working with the Howard Area Community Center and the Organization of the Northeast, Moore launched a pre-apprenticeship training program to help neighborhood residents develop the skills necessary to qualify for trade union apprenticeships and ultimately trade union jobs.
Moore also believes in the importance of building neighborhood spirit in the 49th Ward. Community ties are growing stronger with regular community events, such as the annual Back to School Picnic, the Community Bike Ride, the Rogers Park Dinner and Pub Crawls, and the weekly “Follow Me on Friday” series that highlights a 49th Ward business each week.
Moore also keeps ward residents up to date on community and City Council news with regular electronic newsletters, which are delivered to over 10,000 49th Ward residents several times a week.
