Tommy Moore joins National Payday Lending Trade Association as VP

ALEXANDRIA, VA (WIS) - Former South Carolina Senator Tommy Moore, who resigned from the state Senate Saturday, has been announced as Executive Vice President for the National Payday Lending Trade Association. 

Moore was the Democratic Party's 2006 Nominee for Governor of South Carolina. Before being elected to the Senate in 1981, Moore served briefly in the South Carolina State House. He is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, served on the Executive Committee of the National Conference of State Legislators and the state legislation committee of the Council of State Governments. 

"At this point in my career, I saw an exciting opportunity to take on a new challenge that builds on my long history of supporting and protecting consumers," said Moore. "CFSA shares those goals and I've been impressed with the great strides they have taken to educate consumers about responsible use of the service."

"Payday advance customers appreciate this service, however, payday lending remains misunderstood by those unfamiliar with its benefits to working families. I look forward to dispelling misperceptions about the service and furthering CFSA's efforts to promote responsible regulation. Compromise and bipartisanship have been the cornerstones of my career in pubic service and will be instrumental in helping the payday advance industry navigate its legislative challenges," said Moore.  

Moore and his family will be relocating to the Washington, DC area.
