In his two terms in the Alabama House of Representatives, Barry Moore earned the reputation as one of Alabama’s most conservative legislators. Barry fought for lower taxes and less government regulation.
Growing up on a farm in Coffee County, Barry learned early what a man’s hands say about him. Hard work, along with moral integrity with a true love for God and country shaped not only Barry’s hands but also his heart.
As Chairman of Military and Veteran Affairs, Barry authored and sponsored key legislation to include bringing the "RedTails" F-35 Fighter Squadron to Montgomery. His sponsored legislation made strides to protect military families from unfair child custody courts, secure residency for in-state tuition programs for military families and veterans, protect the licensing of working spouses through licensure reciprocity, and advocate for our Purple Heart Recipients.
Growing up on a farm in Coffee County, Barry learned early what a man’s hands say about him. Hard work, moral integrity, and a true love for God and country shaped not only Barry’s hands but also his heart. This dedicated work ethic led Barry to Auburn University, where in 1992, he earned his degree in Agricultural Science. While at Auburn, Barry was enlisted in the Alabama National Guard and Reserves, where he excelled at being a soldier, and was a member of the Army Ranger Challenge Team in Auburn’s ROTC program. The best thing, however, that happened while in Auburn was meeting his wife, Heather Hopper Moore, whose strength, wisdom and quick wit made them an unstoppable team.

Whether it be in business or public service, Barry’s number one focus is the needs of the people he serves. Faith, Family, Finance and Freedom are the fundamentals that guide all aspects of Barry’s life. In all decisions as a legislator, Barry measured the consequences of any bill on these four fundamentals. It’s a system that served him well and won him the distinction as a dependable, conservative vote in Montgomery. He will take the same fundamentals to Washington D.C.
