Brockley Moore is now leading the Killeen Independent School District board of trustees candidates in both political contributions and political expenditures with over $10,000 in both categories.
Moore’s campaign finance report was not available on the school district’s website early last week, but it can now be seen at https://www.killeenisd.org/pre_election_finance_report_2020 along with six other candidates for school board.
According to Moore’s report, he has had $12,550 in contributions and just over $17,784 in total political expenditures — thousands of dollars more than the next leading candidate.
Nearly $7,000 of his expenditures have gone to fund advertisements with both the Killeen Daily Herald and Voices United Publication of Killeen, a quarterly newspaper.
Moore also spent $2,200 on a KISD reading and writing initiative, and $1,000 was given to the Refuge Corporation for a local food drive, according to his finance report.
Some other expenses included $2,000 for a KISD scholarship, just over $5,683 on school supplies for students and other expenditures related to the district.
All of his political contributions came from himself or apparent members of his family that have the same last name.
