Secretary of State candidate is ready for office

June 8, 2006 

Albany-- A political newcomer known as Miss Angela now wants to be known as Miss Secretary of State.  

Thursday night, Angela Moore opened a campaign office in Albany. Moore spent the past several years as a businesswoman and more recently as a voice for children caught between state care and adoption.  Her foundation is called Betwixt N Between, formed about four years ago.

She now wants to focus more attention on legislative issues. She says her first priority will be making sure the voting process is secure.  

"We know that we have problems based on the lawsuits across the country so I think I would one like to start to fight for a stronger legislation that provides that paper ballot that we're going to pay very dearly for," says Moore.

Moore says the voice of the South has been missed during several campaign trails and she felt the need to bring an office here to Southwest Georgia to hear concerns.

She also wants to beef up the state's business licensing process and bring major boxing back to Georgia. She's a Democrat from Dekalb County.
