Ken Moore SREC SD11State Republican Executive Committee Representative
Ken Moore, Committeeman
(713) 446-8100 

In 2008 Ken Moore was a CNC machinist for a large firm that manufactured equipment for deep sea oil platforms. He and his wife, Judy, live peaceful lives in the southeastern part of Houston with one child in college and another in high school. Ken served as a deacon at a local church. Having been a long-time photography hobbyist, Ken found himself in charge of the church’s audio/visual team making CD’s and DVD’s of worship services and other events. Life was simple but full.

On the horizon, a storm was brewing that would compel Ken to enter a whole new arena for which he had little preparation. In November of that year Barak Obama was elected president of the United States. A year living under his administration convinced Ken to look for a way to get involved. Ken had no political experience. He had never worked an election, had never worked for a campaign, and had never held or ran for an office. 

In 2010 he attended his first ever Republican precinct convention and became a delegate to his first Senate District convention. At the Senate District convention, he was chosen as a delegate to his first state convention. While at the state convention, he ran into his precinct chair who was about to move out of the precinct and was looking for a replacement. Ken applied for and was voted in to fill the vacancy. In November of that year he served as presiding judge over his first election. 

Over the next several years, Ken gained experience running elections in his and surrounding precincts. He used his position to recruit and mentored several new election workers. In 2014 he filled a vacancy on HCRP’s Ballot Security committee. While on that committee Ken recruited and coached election workers and poll watchers. He also used the skills he had learned as a deacon to produce training videos for the party. In 2016 he was asked to be a part of, what was then, the Election Integrity working group of the Republican Party of Texas He accepted and served as photographer and setup guy as the need arose. Later the working group became an SREC special committee. 

In 2018, Ken fulfilled a promise he had made to Judy some years earlier to one day move to a better house and neighborhood. So Ken resigned his position as precinct chair, gave up his seat on Ballot Security, and moved from Houston to Pearland in Brazoria County. 

In 2020, Ken ran for and was elected Precinct chair for his voting precinct, 46. Later that year the Brazoria County Republican Party voted to establish an Election Integrity Committee. Because of his experience in Harris County and with RPT, Ken was asked to serve as chairman of the committee and continues in that capacity to this day.

Through it all, Ken maintained his relationship with members and committees of the SREC. During the 2021 legislative session he was active in the Election Committee and the Elections Subcommittee of Legislative Priorities. He was not a voting member of these committees but he could do research on election bills and offer his advise. He also spent much time in Austin advocating for election bills before Senate and House committees. 

At the 2022 state convention Ken ran for and was elected SREC Committeeman for Senate District 11. Ken plans to use that position to push Republican legislative priorities, advocate for the Senate district to the state party, and provide resources and training to local candidates and activists.

Congressman Randy Weber

U.S. House of Representatives
House District 14
Congressman Randy Weber

For over 60 years, Randy Weber has called the Gulf Coast home – a place to start a family and build a business. Although juggling work and family takes great amounts of time and effort, Weber makes time to be an active member of his church and community. Weber built his air conditioning company, Weber’s Air & Heat, in 1981 from scratch, and grew his business by using, what his grandfather used to call, ‘good old-fashion Texas horse sense and a strong work ethic.’ Like others who have successfully moved from business to public service, it is Weber’s real-world experience in the private sector that underpins his commitment to lower taxes, his contempt for wasteful spending, and his firm dedication to better schools.
