AL-02: Barry Moore (R)
Growing up on a farm in Coffee County, Barry Moore learned early what a man’s hands say about him.
This dedicated work ethic led Moore to Auburn University, where in 1992, he earned his degree in Agricultural Science. While at Auburn, he 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.
As chairman of Military and Veteran Affairs, Moore 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.
In 1998, Moore founded his own company. He and his wife, Heather, own and operate Barry Moore Industries. He started BMI with one garbage truck and a passion for business. More than 20 years later, BMI, Inc continues to grow and prosper at record levels. BMI, Inc most recently had the opportunity to assist Tyndall Air Force Base after Hurricane Michael with their rebuilding efforts.
Moore and Heather have been married for 27 years. They have four children- Jeremy, Kathleen, Claudia and Jeb along with two dogs-Rocket and Dolly.
