ATLANTIC CITY â€“ The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority announced last week that Maisha Y. Moore, a former key figure in the city government of Atlantic City, has been named its new deputy executive director.
Moore, a Pleasantville resident, will work under new CRDA Executive Director Sean Pattwell, who took over the leadership position in March.
â€œWe are excited to welcome Mrs. Moore to CRDA,â€ Pattwell said in a statement. â€œShe brings nearly 10 years of work experience in municipal and state government and will be proactive in promoting economic and community development initiatives in Atlantic City and throughout the region.â€
As former chief of staff for ex-Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam, Moore directed the day-to-day operations of the Mayorâ€™s office and collaborated and guided City Hall department processes and functions to current industry standards for municipal services.
Moore also collaborated with stakeholders within the State of New Jersey to bring new direction and opportunities to Atlantic City.
â€œWe are excited to have Maisha join our team,â€ CRDA Board Chairman Mo Butler said. â€œTogether with our new Executive Director Sean Pattwell, this dynamic leadership team will bring renewed energy to CRDA as we focus on initiatives that will revitalize Atlantic City and the surrounding communities.â€
Prior to working for the City of Atlantic City, Moore worked for non-profits in grant writing and under U.S. Senator Cory Booker, with a focus on Uniform Services, Department of Veteran Affairs, Department of Corrections, Internal Revenue Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Moore earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Cheyney University of Pennsylvania in Political Science in 2009.
