Ed Moore

Ed Moore’s keen focus and command of complex issues served him well through years as a human-resources exec in the banking and financial-services industry. Those same skills have served South Orange residents since he returned to town in 2010 with his wife Tonia. A Jersey City native with degrees from St. Peter’s College and The New School, Ed took early retirement to go to work in the non-profit sector, including Americans for UNFPA, an organization raises funds for the United Nations agency that protects women’s reproductive rights around the world. The President of the West Montrose Neighborhood Association, Ed advocated on the community’s behalf to hold the Board of Trustees accountable for significant land-use, pedestrian safety and downtown-development issues. Among his many volunteer duties, Ed serves on the management committee of SOMA Two Towns for All Ages, an organization committed to helping seniors who choose to “age in place” within the community we love. He also practices what he preaches: His daughter and son - plus their spouses and children - all now live in South Orange, too, involving Ed and Tonia in the concerns facing all generations of residents.
