Biographical Sketch!       



Dwight "Clint" Moore, 47, is a widely-respected Republican leader, businessman, scientist, and community activist, with over 25-years of proven leadership and experience in the Greater Houston area.  He is a Licensed Professional Geoscientist in the State of Texas, and has held scientific and management positions with several petroleum exploration companies during his 25 year professional career, and is currently the newly elected Treasurer of the 30,000 member American Association of Petroleum Geologists. In addition to be elected for the third time as a Republican National Convention Delegate at the Texas State Republican Convention in June, Clint was also elected as one of the 62 members of the State Republican Executive Committee. During the last 7 months leading up to the Republican Primary, Clint left the private sector and was an active candidate for one of the new congressional district seats created by redistricting, but finished in third place out of six candidates for the Republican nomination behind the nominee for District 2, Judge Ted Poe.

For nearly two decades, Mr.. Moore has been very active in the Republican Party, locally in Harris County, Texas, as well as statewide and nationally. He has three times been elected by the State Republican Convention to be a Delegate from Texas to the National Republican Conventions. He was first elected as a Congressional District Delegate from Texas to the 1996 National Republican Convention in San Diego,  then as an At-Large Delegate from Texas to the 2000 National Republican Convention in Philadelphia, and now to the 2004 Convention in New York City. He’s a respected expert on County, State, and National Party rules, and has served the Harris County Republican Party as Parliamentarian and Rules Committee Chairman. He has served on the State Republican Executive Committee Rules Committee, as well as the State Rules Committee for the last five State Conventions, writing and passing key rules that empower the grassroots of the Party, and advance the State & National Party Platform. His fellow precinct chairmen in Senate District 7, one of the largest and most Republican in the State, have repeatedly elected him as their Senate District Chairman, as had Senate District 15 chairmen before them.  He’s been elected as a delegate to every State Republican Convention back to the early 1980’s; he’s served as a Republican Precinct Chairman and Election Judge since the late 1980’s, and participated in countless dozens of political campaigns, voter registration, and get-out-the vote efforts. Currently, he continues to help lead the the Harris County Republican Party as one of 12-members of its Advisory Board, as an appointee of Harris County Republican Party Chairman Jared Woodfill.

He has also held elected public office from 2000-2002, when he was elected in a six-candidate race for one of the five District Director positions for the North Harris County Regional Water Authority. This important regional board’s mission was to plan, procure, and deliver long-term drinking water supplies to over 400,000 people in north suburban Harris County, and is estimated to eventually cost well over $1 Billion. Mr.. Moore’s understanding of complex groundwater and surface water science and policy issues, were invaluable to the Authority Board during its inaugural term, and he chose not to seek re-election to spend more time building the Republican Party in Harris County, as Senate District 7 Chairman. He currently also serves as an elected Director on his neighborhood Spring Lakes Homeowners Association, and as elected Vice-President of Municipal Utility District 249. 

The son of the late Alfred & Clara Moore, a hard-luck “wildcatter” and a housewife, Clint has distinguished himself from a young age as a hard-working leader with many accomplishments and honors in academics, business, industry, science, government, and politics.

Clint Moore graduated in 1978 with honors from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where he earned degrees in business and geology, a minor in Economics, and was designated a University Scholar during an exemplary academic career. Upon graduation in 1978, Clint relocated to Houston and spent the next 9 years as a lead geologist for Diamond Shamrock Corporation, drilling wells all across the Gulf of Mexico region, and traveling to many towns throughout the Gulf Coast.

In 1986, he was promoted to the Corporate Development & Planning at Diamond’s HQ in Dallas, where in addition to his business development & planning responsibilities; Clint helped to successfully defend the company against a hostile takeover from a famous corporate raider. In 1987, Clint resigned from Diamond Shamrock to take a senior geological position with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. in Houston, receiving several managerial positions over the next 15 years, and finishing his corporate career there in 2003, where he was responsible for Business Development & Competitor Analysis of the Offshore Gulf of Mexico.

After Clint left Anadarko in 2003 to prepare for his run for Congress, he was called by several prominent Republican elected officials, to serve as Executive Director of “Texans For True Mobility”, and helped manage their near-successful campaign to defeat the METRO rail plan.

Mr. Moore was the youngest President in the 75-year history of the 4,500-member Houston Geological Society in 1994, where he directed this major Texas professional society of over 40 committees.  He has received their highest awards, including the President’s Award, Distinguished Service Award, and Honorary Life Membership.  He recently completed a 5-year term as Chairman of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Government Affairs Committee, where he lead the development of over a dozen Position Papers on governmental issues, in addition to preparing congressional testimony and frequently traveling to our national and state capitol to brief many of our elected leaders.

Clint and his wife Diana, a CPA and Corporate Controller for a major drilling company, have been married more than seventeen years, and both are very active in community and professional affairs. They’ve lived in the Spring area, a northern suburb of Houston, for virtually all of their married life. As church members, they attend St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, where they were married in 1986.
