"Ward 9 City Council candidate Mickey Moore is one of the fresh faces this political season with energy, skills, ideas, and clear-eyed realism. Born and raised in Minneapolis, he cares about less crime and meaningful police reform and accountability, including putting more good cops on the streets and working with Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, not against him."

“I can’t think of a more qualified person with honesty and integrity to represent
Ward 9 on the Minneapolis City Council than Mickey Moore. When my family came to America in 1995, we could not ask for a more compassionate or kind
sponsor than Mickey. Not only did he move out of his home to accommodate our large family, he also founded a new business to assist my daughters and the East African community with gainful employment. He also took a hands-on approach in mentoring my five children, which helped propel them to success beyond my wildest imagination.”

Business Endorsements

"Almost since we first opened, Mickey has been stopping in on a regular basis to make sure we have what we need and to find out what he can do to help us make it through this difficult time. His decades of business experience in this area is important and I know he's going to help young, Black entrepreneurs like me achieve our highest possible success."

"When the neighborhood surrounding Circulo de Amigos saw a disturbing increase in crime we reached out directly to Mickey Moore for help. He immediately began working with the Minneapolis Police Department to help develop a comprehensive security plan for us to ensure our students, staff and facility were safe and protected. If Mickey can do this for our school on such short notice, we have complete confidence that he will personally deliver the same results for all the residents and business owners in the 9th Ward and Minneapolis as our next City Council representative."

As the founder of The Braid Factory, Mickey understands what it takes to start and run a successful small business. He also understands better than any other candidate in this race that small and minority-owned businesses are the economic backbone of Ward 9. That’s why I believe we can trust Mickey to deliver on his commitments to support and strengthen our economic diversity and prosperity as our next Minneapolis City Council representative.”

"It took me a long time to finish the 38th and Chicago Forgivable Loan application, but Mickey came by seven or eight times to help me.  Although Mickey is very busy, he always answers his phone and has time for me.  I've been in this neighborhood for over 20 years, but I've never known anyone like Mickey who cares so much about the success of my business."

"Mickey understands how to run a small business. It's so obvious that he really cares about us, our staff, and our customers. Mickey only wants the best for our business, and he's willing to work hard to make sure we are successful."

Dr. Bruck Eshete
 

"As a Black woman with more than 30 years of experience working in communities in Minneapolis, I understand the grassroots needs of people.  I support Mickey Moore because he is accessible, smart, involved, and he truly cares about people.  We need strong and decisive leadership that works for all of us, and Mickey is that leader."

"As a block leader, I don't need another City Council member who doesn't return my phone calls.  Mickey answers his own phone.  He also has the knowledge, experience, and skills to navigate the complexities of city government on day one."

"I first met MIckey in 1993, and we have been close friends ever since. His level of dedication, personal motivation, and professionalism to a superior set of ideals sets him apart from anyone I've ever know, before or since"

Tim Chapdelaine

"It's amazing to me how Mickey is always just a phone call away.  I've had some pretty serious issues, and he has always answered every call, every text.  He's there for whatever I need. He doesn't judge anyone or choose one type of person to help over another. He just simply helps people."
