Councilmember Martin A. Moore


Dear Neighbors, and Friends,

​I'm grateful for the second term you've given me, and I'm delighted I get to continue serving my community - our community - as your Federal Way City Councilmember. 

I love this city, and I couldn't be more excited about what it's become and the path we're on toward making a stronger, healthier community for our families and residents.

Solutions. Together. It's the theme I ran on and it's what my second term will be all about. I believe we're at our strongest when we come together as a community; when we work together to oversome any challenges we may face.  I cannot do this job on my own. Coming together and working together is the only way we'll achieve solutions like building better parks, building a stronger economy, advocating for working families, protecting our open spaces, and approaching our issues at their roots. I'm confident we can continue to move Federal Way forward and ensure our residents have opportunities they can embrace and that they deserve, whether they're opportunities to work or play right here in the best city in the South Puget Sound region.

If there's anything I can do to be of service to you, don't hesitate call or email me.  Thank you again for the opportunity to serve you and to keep realizing my dreams of passionate public service.

Martin was adopted at the age of eight from Sofia, Bulgaria and arrived in Federal Way in 1992. His parents, both educators, instilled in him the importance of putting others before yourself and giving back to your community.

Martin attended Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church, where he was an Altar Server and now attends Saint Vincent DePaul Parish. He attended Federal Way public school before enrolling in Saint Martin’s University, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Political Science.

Following his college graduation, Martin returned to Federal Way and continued his community service as a Federal Way Parks and Recreation Commissioner since 2007. In addition, he served in the Federal Way Public Schools AmeriCorps program from 2009 to 2011, where he tutored, led after-school programs, and helped at-risk students towards the goal of attending college.

Martin is a very proud uncle to a three-year-old nephew, Milo, and a niece, Rowan. He wants to make Federal Way a place where dreams can come true for their generation, just as it was for a child from Bulgaria years ago.  

Martin is married to Sarah (August 2016) and is currently working on his master degree in school guidance counseling through City University of Seattle.
