With the filing deadline for the 2024 election a few days away, the North Carolina District 62 State House Republican primary is getting crowded.

On Tuesday, Dec. 12, long time High Point City Councilmember Brit Moore announced his candidacy for the District 62 seat.

Moore will join former state Rep. John Blust, Michelle Bardsley and Jaxson Barber in the March 5 Republican primary.

One difference between Moore and his three opponents is that they all have Greensboro addresses while Moore is from High Point.  District 62 state Rep. John Faircloth is also from High Point and served on the High Point City Council before being elected to the state legislature. Faircloth has announced he is not running for re-election.

Moore in a press release said, “From Summerfield to Stokesdale and Oak Ridge to High Point and Greensboro, there is so much that makes our community a special place. But with all that we face today – from economic headwinds to challenges in our schools – the desire to serve and make our community a better place has taken a new direction. After much prayer and the support of my family, I’m excited to announce my candidacy to be a voice for the people of North Carolina.”

Moore is a native of High Point and has served as an at-large representative on the High Point City Council for over ten years. According to the press release he “helped lead the charge for the city’s downtown revitalization and catylist project.”

Moore states that he wants to:

“Empower parents, teachers and schools with the funding and support to inspire the next generation of leaders.

“Ensure that North Carolina’s economy supports our families and businesses – keeping taxes low and creating an environment for small businesses to start, grow and thrive; and

“Support and collaborate with first responders and key stakeholders to keep our communities safe and secure.”
