Charleston Trident Association of Realtors Support Moody for Charleston City Council
Charleston, South Carolina – October 20, 2011 – Charleston business leader, Bill Moody, received the endorsement of the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors representing more than 4,000 local realtors.
“I’m honored to have received the endorsement of the realtors,” said Moody “The realtors know first-hand the struggles of owning and operating their small businesses across the Lowcountry. I also want to thank the Realtor’s Candidate Screening Committee for their time in interviewing and evaluating of all the candidates. My candidacy received the highest marks and I’m very proud to have its support.”
The CTAR’s endorsement demonstrates its belief that Moody truly understands the concerns of local realtors, issues such as maintaining our citizens’ property rights, preservation of Charleston’s unique way of life, higher paying jobs, improved schools, less road congestion and more responsible government. CTAR will recommend to their more than 4,000 realtors that they cast their ballots on Tuesday November 8th for Bill Moody for Charleston City Council.

Charleston Businessman Brings Proven Leadership to Council
Charleston, South Carolina – June 20, 2011 – After weeks of encouragement from friends, supporters, small business owners and community leaders, Bill Moody today announced his candidacy for the District 11 seat on Charleston City Council –representing a portion of West Ashley.
“I’ve spent my entire career watching the bottom line, not only for my business as a CPA, but for the bottom line of our clients as well. I’ll bring my extensive experience in auditing of governmental entities to the spending of scarce city tax dollars,” said Moody. “We must prioritize our spending, increase revenues without raising taxes or fees, and I’ll do that by improving the conditions needed for businesses to prosper within the city. As a fiscal conservative, I believe we need not only a smaller government, but one designed to efficiently meet the needs of our citizens and our small business community.”
Moody –now retired, is founder and CEO of Gamble Givens and Moody CPA LLC and Dixon Hughes LLC. He’s spent the last 20 years of his professional career as the managing partner of Gamble Givens and Moody. During Moody’s tenure the firm tripled its gross revenues to become one of the state’s largest and most profitable firms.
Moody’s long history of serving our community includes his tenure as past president of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, past chairman of the Trident United Way, past chairman of the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, former member of the Charleston County Planning Board, Crimestoppers, and Lowcountry Chapter of the American Red Cross, among others.
Moody, age 67, was born in Kentucky and raised in Myrtle Beach. He graduated from the Citadel Military College in 1965. Moody and his wife, Audrey, have been married for 48 years and have three children and 7 grandchildren. Since 1968, the Moody family has been active members of John Wesley United Methodist Church.
July 6th, 2011 Campaign Update Email
Dear Friends and Supporters,
I hope everyone had fun and safe 4th of July! I want to take a moment to update you on my campaign for Charleston City Council. Since announcing my bid for the District 11 seat, I have met with many of you, both residents and business owners alike; and I have listened to the issues that are important to you and your families. I’ve shared my vision on how we can improve city services while watching the bottom line. I believe we must prioritize our spending and increase revenues without raising taxes or fees. Business owners have told me that elected officials must improve the environment needed for business to once again prosper, and I’ve given my promise to work to find solutions that will help grow our economy. I’m excited by your support and your financial contributions to my campaign, but we still have a long way to go until the November elections.
District 11 councilmember Timmy Mallard has announced that he will not seek re-election in November, and I want to take this opportunity to thank Timmy personally for his service on council. There is another challenger in this race, and I look forward to sharing with the voters my vision, experience and proven leadership as why I’m the best candidate for District 11.
I kindly ask that you forward this email to ten of your friends and family, in an effort to help get the word out to folks who live within District 11. If you need anything, feel free to contact me or visit my web site which is currently under construction at www.votemoody.com.
Audrey and I wish you a safe summer, and I look forward to visiting with you soon!
Thank you again,
