Known in these parts as Captain Watchdog, Jason Moore has been an inspiration for frustrated taxpayers for many years. And it's great to see him get a national honor. The announcement appears at AmericansForProsperity.org which tells us he is the recipient of the The Vernon K. Krieble Foundation’s Unsung Hero Award:
The Vernon K. Krieble Foundation will award a $25,000 check to Jason at the State Policy Network’s 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting in Amelia Island, Fla., on Wednesday, November 14. Many excellent candidates from around the country were nominated for the award, but Jason stood out for his efforts as a “citizen watchdog.”
Jason vigilantly attends city, county and school board meetings with his camera in hand to hold public officials accountable on how they are spending tax payer dollars. His latest effort is to educate the public on the large local debt in Texas ($322 billion) and the local bond initiatives on the November ballot.
The $25,000 prize might help provide a cushion for him when we hit the fiscal cliff. But if nothing else, it certainly should move him up to "Sung Hero" status.
Congratulations, Jason! Thanks for all you do!
