David Benjamin Moye
Councilman, West Columbia Council District #8
Great Neighbors Make Great Neighborhoods
For years, I have been active in my neighborhood. I will be an active council member for District 8.
I am a 3rd Generation West Columbian, a lifelong member of Mt. Tabor Lutheran Church on B Ave.
West Columbia is a growing "Small Town City." My wife, Lisa, and I, are fully committed to West Columbia's bright future as the the best place to live and raise a family.
Most importantly, I have proven results in West Columbia.
House by house, my local business cleans up properties, reduces crime, and raises property values in neighborhoods that were neglected.
Where others gave up hope, I have attracted the best neighbors.
I have also attracted the best new business.
I have the right qualifications to serve you well on Council.
I've listened. I've been there.
I've spoken for others, even when it took courage.
I know what it takes.
I will listen to you.
I will respond to you.
I am honored to serve you.

My biggest personal contribution to West Columbia Growth - "House by House" cleaning up properties in neglected parts of town- where others gave up hope, and recruiting the best neighbors anyone could hope for.
My campaign slogan is "Great Neighbors Make Great Neighborhoods." I think attracting the best neighbors in the West Columbia area is key for our district and solves all ills. It is very possible because I have been doing it. As your council representative, I would be thrilled to present a redevelopment vision that brings great neighbors district-wide, in this city where I was born, that I love.
