About Don Moffitt
We endorse Don Moffitt for re-election to the Ward 3 Council seat. Since joining the Council in 2013, Moffitt has demonstrated his ability to shape policy with other Council members. Previously he was a highly successful member of the Planning Commission for six years, including three of them as Chair. He is always accessible and responsive to his constituents.
Don has a track record. He has special expertise in zoning, transportation and land use planning. He has been an effective advocate for economic development and job creation. His employment background, as Regional President of Whole Foods Market, has given him experience and understanding of the community for vibrant businesses. His architecture undergraduate degree from UT-Austin and his MBA from UNC are the genesis for the skills he has developed.
In his 25+ years as a Durham resident, Don has served on many boards. He has spent many hours meeting with residents and working on issues such as affordable housing, public safety and neighborhoods. Still, Don knows that there is much more to be accomplished for all of Durham.
Don shares with the Friends of Durham the belief that economic development and job creation for all are crucial to moving our community to even greater success.
