We the people... Opening Government for the People... By the People
Keith Moore brings to the TEAM, knowledge of Government, Community, Small Business, and the historical challenges associated with Government meeting socio economic goals.
In 1996, Keith Moore received the Martin Luther King Jr Community Service Award by the National Association of Advancement for Colored People. As a result of assessing the problems that caused the community of Asbury Park New Jersey to have the highest rate of unemployment, crime rates, and incidents of drug convictions in Monmouth County, Keith decided to convert one of his family owned health care facilities into a drug and alcohol halfway house for men and women. This first time ever conversion of a state licensed boarding home to a licensed Half way house rapidly became a part of the solution to reduce the number of homeless addicts residing in the city. EXODUS House became a seven year success for human restoration, and also became the catalyst that changed public policy at the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, and Department of Health. The approval to convert a class C boarding home into a licensed residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility initiated changes in regulations for the boarding home industry. Keith’s command of public policy has benefited community, business and government, and empowered those most vulnerable, challenged and least financed.
Keith as a result of his success in the waterfront community of Asbury Park, became a frequent guest on NJN Network and Comcast, and was characterized as a community leader, and one who believed in the development of innovative approaches to community development. EXODUS House offered drug and alcohol rehabilitation services to addicted men and women for six months with housing, education, job training, and a second chance at a productive life. In 1997, the State of New Jersey agreed to purchase the facility located one block from the Asbury Park beach. Once the EXODUS House was purchased, Keith was appointed in 1997 by the Governor of New Jersey and Secretary of Commerce to the position of Account Executive to the New Jersey Commerce & Economic Growth Commission. His appointment led to a position as Director of Public Affairs and Community Relations working directly for Governor Christie Todd Whitman in the Governor’s Camden New Jersey office helping to advance the allocation of over 250 million dollars of revitalization funds into the city of Camden. (Second poorest city in the country).
Today, Keith Moore, a nationally renown community activist, small business advocate, and government affairs expert communicates his firm’s grasp of public policy as OGTV leads the nation by example. OGTV, founded by Keith Moore December 31, 2009, is the first internet TV program in America to film, and promote the White House’s Executive Order on the Open Government Directive by concentrating on the policy’s attention on small business. OGTV as a Division of KDM, and web based video platform, engages large businesses, and helps small businesses succeed in government contracting. KDM, thanks to OGTV, is well positioned to help government, and large businesses meet their small business diversity goals, and NGO’s to meet their mission by using innovative online approaches to education and outreach.

Today, I cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education: Betsy DeVos.
The vote the President asked me to cast wasn’t just for Betsy – it was also for America’s future.
Our nation’s success depends on the education of our students. In Betsy DeVos, we have one of America’s foremost advocates for educational opportunity and excellence.
One of the greatest Presidents in U.S. history was born on February 6, 1911. Today we honor the legacy and remember the man who served as our 40th President, Ronald Reagan.
President Reagan inspired a generation to believe in America once again and build a better future for their country. Below is his second inaugural address to the Nation.
On our last, full day here at the White House, here is the Obama Administration's 388th -- and final -- episode of our weekly round-up video, West Wing Week. For 388 weeks in a row, we have produced a zippy, zingy wrap-up of everything the President's been up to that week, and it has been such fun doing so. Thanks for tuning in, and all the best, from all of us to all of you.
Today, the President granted commutation to 330 individuals. The President has now granted commutation to a total of 1,715 individuals, including 568 people who had been sentenced to life in prison. The vast majority of these men and women are serving unduly long sentences for drug crimes. With today’s action, the President has granted more commutations than any president in this nation’s history and has surpassed the number of commutations granted by the past 13 presidents combined.
Editor's note: President Obama sent this final message to the White House email list this morning.
My fellow Americans,
It's a long-standing tradition for the sitting president of the United States to leave a parting letter in the Oval Office for the American elected to take his or her place. It's a letter meant to share what we know, what we've learned, and what small wisdom may help our successor bear the great responsibility that comes with the highest office in our land, and the leadership of the free world.
