She is married to Scott Runck, and the couple have two daughters.

Ms. Moore is the daughter of the late Louis Moore, who was a member of the Batavia Village Council, the Batavia Board of Education, and the Batavia Township Board of Trustees.

Councilwoman Moore is one of four members of the panel whose seats expire Dec. 31, 2021, and will be up for election in November. The others are Kathleen Turner, Robert Handra, and Jason Gipson.
