The 8th Ward is proud to endorse Judge Mark Moore for Court of Common Pleas.

Rated “Highly Recommended” by the Philadelphia Bar, advocating for the people of Philadelphia has been a passion and a privilege for Judge Moore, who has spent most of his legal career serving the public.  Appointed to the bench by Governor Wolf in 2020, Judge Moore must win this election to stay in his seat, where sits in the criminal division.  After serving as an Assistant DA in Philadelphia for 13 years, he defended people in civil court for 8 years.  A Central High graduate, Judge Moore earned his degrees from Hampton University, Villanova University School of Law, and the Temple Law School LLM in Trial Advocacy.  He serves the community in many ways – food distribution through his church, as President of Northwest Victim Services, and helping voters get to the polls in his neighborhood.  He is a committed member of The Barristers Association of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Bar Association, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.  In October 2019, he released his first novel, “The People’s Business,” a crime-fiction thriller set in modern-day Philadelphia.  An avid sports fan, Judge Moore enjoys playing the piano and spending time with his family and their rescue dog Hannibal the Conqueror.  Judge Moore strongly believes that public trust in the legal system is strengthened when those with authority have a strong sense of integrity, are even-tempered and are deeply committed to fairness.
