 Felicia A. Moore was elected to the Atlanta City Council in 1997, and is serving her fourth term representing the citizens of District 9.  Currently, she serves as Chair of the Finance/Executive Committee and is a member of the Committee on Council and the Transportation Committee.

During her tenure, she has also chaired the Community Development/Human Resources, Transportation and Committee on Council.

Felicia is an active member of the National League of Cities (NLC).    She is a Past President of the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (NBC-LEO), a constituency group of NLC, and a past chair and member of the NBC-LEO Foundation.  As a participant of the Leadership Training Institute, she has recently earned the Platinum Ambassador Certificate Award.

On the state level, she is an active member of the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA).  She has served as a member of the Board of Directors, Past President of Central Region/District 3, and the Legislative Policy Council.  She is a member of the Revenue and Finance Policy Committee.  In addition, she is President of the Georgia Municipal Black Caucus (GMBC), to which she is a co-founder.

One of her legislative highlights is the instrumental role she had in the major July 2011 Pension Reform for the City of Atlanta.  Moore is credited by many for bringing the labor unions, pension boards and employee groups together to agree on their increased contribution level to save their Defined Benefits and avoid costly legal action against the City.  Another highlight was inspired by the case of Mrs. Mattie Moore (no relation), an Alzheimer patient who wandered away from her District 9 home in April 2004, and whose remains were discovered six months later within 500 feet of her home.  In response, Felicia authored legislation to establish the “Mattie’s Call” alert system that became an Atlanta Police Department Standard Operating Procedure for swift, efficient public alerts to assist in finding missing mentally impaired persons.  In 2006, the law was adopted statewide.  Additionally, she brought “Project Lifesaver” to Atlanta , which provides a monitoring bracelet that can be tracked by police with a transmitter to quickly find wandering patients. 

Moore is currently Chair of the Policy Committee for the Georgia Alzheimer’s Association, a member of the Georgia Board of Governors, and an Alzheimer’s Ambassador.

Felicia started her community service in 1991 when she purchased a home in the Riverside neighborhood.  She served as President of the neighborhood association for several years, spearheading youth programs, crime-watch and beautification efforts.  In 1995, she was elected Chair of Neighborhood Planning Unit-D becoming a community advocate for environmental, housing and economic development issues.

She is a cum laude graduate of Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio with a B.A. in communications, and is a licensed Real Estate Broker.

Moore has received numerous honors and awards including being listed in “Who’s Who in Black Atlanta,” “Outstanding Young Women in America” and “The Women Looking Ahead 100 List.”  She has also been recognized by the Atlanta Business League as one of “ Atlanta ’s Top 100 Women of Influence.”
