The Covington News - - LOCAL - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­news.com

In re­sponse to en­cour­age­ment from fel­low cit­i­zens of Por­terdale and his in­ten­tion to find op­por­tu­ni­ties to give back to the com­mu­nity, Marvin Moore has de­cided to run for City Coun­cil.

Marvin is orig­i­nally from Cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia where he grew up on a dairy farm owned and op­er­ated by his fam­ily. He started his ca­reer with IBM and a few years later joined his first startup com­pany. Over the next sev­eral years he held var­i­ous man­age­ment po­si­tions. He has held a Real Es­tate Bro­kers Li­cense and was part of a turn­around man­age­ment team.

In 1989 he was asked to come to this area to help a man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany that was in bank­ruptcy. He agreed to come for 90 days dur­ing which time he fell in love with the small town life­style and the peo­ple. In 1989 the com­pany emerged from bank­ruptcy. The com­pany was later sold to what is now Hill Phoenix (the largest em­ployer in Rock­dale County). He has 40 years in man­age­ment, with the last 25 years in ex­ec­u­tive man­age­ment.

Marvin Moore moved to Por­terdale three years ago and pur­chased and ren­o­vated a four­room mill house for him­self. Ren­o­va­tion of old houses is how he is spend­ing his re­tire­ment days.

Be­ing a part of the re­nais­sance of Por­terdale and be­liev­ing that his busi­ness and tech­ni­cal skills will make him a valu­able part of the Por­terdale team have mo­ti­vated him to run for of­fice.
