Tonia Moro is running for County Commissioner, Position #1 as a Write-in Candidate
Tonia Moro, Medford attorney and Jackson County resident for 24 years, will launch her write-in campaign for the Democratic nomination for County Commissioner, Position #1, at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22nd, on the steps of the Jackson County Courthouse on S. Oakdale at W. Main Street.
Ms. Moro says, “I will work to forge the economy and infrastructure our county needs to face the challenges of the 21st Century. It’s evident that we need a change in county leadership, and I believe I have the necessary skills to be an effective Jackson County Commissioner.”
Born in Missouri and raised in Florida, Ms. Moro moved to the Rogue Valley in 1990 and has practiced law in state and federal courts in Medford ever since. She currently is in private practice in Medford.
Ms. Moro, 50, who resides in the hills east of Talent, has been involved as a volunteer for local nonprofits, including Rogue Climate and OnTrack. Announcing her campaign on Earth Day is appropriate because Ms. Moro believes we can foster and maintain a business climate that will create much needed jobs while maintaining Jackson County’s outstanding scenic wonders and diversity, which attract tens of thousands of tourists to the county each year.
“I want our county to be responsive to all of our needs and to foster the common good - where we feel physically safe, financially secure and in control of our lives,” she says.
Ms. Moro says she heard that other Democrats were seriously considering filing to run for the two open seats of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners and was surprised to learn that none did file by the deadline last month. She then decided to make the race herself. Now, she’ll be asking Democrats to write in her name on their ballots for Jackson County Commissioner, Position 1. She expects to have her name on the ballot for the November General Election.
