 “I have lived in this community for a long time, 33 years. The most important thing to me is the health, safety and welfare of my family,” Warren City Council District 3 candidate Mindy Moore said. “So really, everything I do is going to be with that baseline of health, safety and wellness of the community.”

Moore: ‘I think that my experience can be helpful’

WARREN — Mindy Moore said she worked with Warren’s administrators and her peers to make the tough decisions needed to shore up the city’s finances when she served on the City Council from 2003 to 2007, before the Great Recession.

This year, she’s back in the running for a seat on the council representing District 3.

“I’ve noticed a lack of development and investment in the city,” said Moore, who owns her own court reporting business. She also served as a member of the Warren Consolidated Schools Board of Education and the Warren Planning Commission prior to her previous term on the City Council.

“I have experience in government, and I think that my experience can be helpful,” she added. “We’re facing an all-new council, with inexperience. I look forward to it. I think it’s exciting to get new ideas and new people involved, but you have to understand how government works, and someone, I think, who has my experience is a good balance for that.”

Warren City Hall, the monuments at Veterans Memorial Park and the Heritage Village development came to fruition during her previous term, and it was then that the city, under former Mayor Mark Steenbergh, laid out ambitious plans for Warren’s new downtown. While chatter is again picking up about finally moving forward with the development north of 12 Mile Road and east of Van Dyke Avenue, the land has sat largely vacant for 15 years.

“It’s very disappointing to me, and I would like to see us move forward with that,” Moore said. “I think we need a master plan that gives everybody direction, what we’re looking for, and takes into account what the residents would like. They say that they would like a walking downtown, and I would like to see that happen.”

Moore said council members have a role to play in that process as ambassadors and liaisons for the community.

“We can certainly have input in what happens there,” Moore said. “We can inspire people to invest. We can communicate with our community and find out what they need and what they’d like to see.”

She said public safety is her top priority and that it’s one she believes most residents share.  Moore also said she wants to make sure salaries and benefits for the city’s first responders remain competitive in order to ensure the city can keep staffing levels at the maximum allowed in the budget.

“I have lived in this community for a long time, 33 years. The most important thing to me is the health, safety and welfare of my family,” Moore said. “So really, everything I do is going to be with that baseline of health, safety and wellness of the community.”
