 Senator Moran is a member of the Knights of Columbus, Hancock Rotary  Club, Hancock Chamber of Commerce, Business & Professional Association  and Mississippi State University Alumni. He is the owner of the very  successful Philip’s Pest Control which has been in business for 34 years.

Senator Moran is currently serving his 2nd term as District 46 Mississippi State Senator and he is currently the Chairman for Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Committee and serves on numerous other committees. He was the author of the Senate Bill “Back the Badge”. He helped in the passing of the bill in the senate chambers, as well as the house of representatives. With his efforts he helped walk this bill through to the governor signing into law making this is a great honor for the Senator to be part of helping make such a great bill become a law.
