Where they stand Q&A: Marcia Moore

Why are you running for office?

I am running for this office for a couple of reasons; first, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Hancock County as their elected clerk, and I would like to continue to do so as the Hancock County recorder. Second; government matters. The majority of what effects the daily lives of our community happens on a local platform; such as tax increases, government spending and so forth. As a fiscal conservative, I want to continue to do the right thing for the constituents of Hancock County.

What makes you a qualified candidate for the position?

In short, experience and education. I have a business degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. My husband Edgar and I have run a small local business (Moore’s Repair) for more than 25 years on the north side of Greenfield. In addition to running a business, I understand government budgeting and the interworking’s of the various government offices. I get it when people believe that government should run like a business; but, I also understand that government and private business are like a cat and a dog; both, are four-legged furry household pets. However, each pet has its unique characteristics and personality.

What are your top three goals for the position?

My goals for the recorder’s office will be to increase access to public records by greatly expanding the documents currently available online. I will utilize new technology to increase the efficiency of the recorder’s office. I will continue to serve the citizens of Hancock County with the same dedication and commitment I have shown while serving as clerk.
