Pasco commission candidate Mike Moore draws early endorsement from property appraiser Mike Wells



Pasco Property Appraiser Mike Wells says he’s endorsing Mike Moore for county commission.

“Once in a great while, an experienced business leader steps forward for the good of the community. Mike Moore is such a man,” Wells said in a release from Moore’s campaign. “I enthusiastically ask my friends and supporters to get behind Mike for the District 2 county commission seat.”

Moore said he’s known Wells, a Republican, several years. Moore is a business broker and president of Wesley Chapel’s Republican club.

The endorsement is the latest in a stream of support for Moore, even though the commission election is still a year away. Other recent endorsements have come from House Speaker Will Weatherford, Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco and County Commissioner Jack Mariano.

Moore is being challenged by fellow Republican Bob Robertson, a financial planner who chairs the Lake Bernadette Community Development District.
