Biography: Dan Moy’s faith is at the core of who he is and what he stands for. Dan was raised by loving, hardworking Christian parents who modeled integrity, character, and service in every endeavor. Dan’s values stem from the richness of that upbringing, the lessons of his personal faith experience, and the grace that has enabled him to lead with courage and conviction throughout his career of military service. Dan’s relationship with Jesus Christ is what grounded him, strengthened him, and motivated him as he led troops in Afghanistan and it will continue to be his guiding light in Congress.

Dan is married to the love of his life, Kellie, and resides in Charlottesville, Virginia where they are raising their two sons Caleb and Titus.

Dan holds a doctoral degree in history from the University of Oklahoma. He is a graduate of the Joint Forces Staff College, the West Point Seminar in Military History, and the George C. Marshall Center’s “Leaders for the 21st Century” international security studies program. Dan also currently serves as an Adjunct Professor for the University of Virginia’s Batten School of Public Policy. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Why you? Last November, Glenn Youngkin drew the blueprint for Republicans winning in Virginia. This wasn’t by stoking fear and it wasn’t about blaming everyone else for our problems. It’s about Republicans showing how we are going to make Virginia a better place to live, work, and raise a family. That is why I entered this race. I will listen to the people of the 5th district and fight for sensible solutions without compromising on our conservative values.

We deserve a Congressman who leads with vision and action. We must do better for our families, kids, business, seniors, and military veterans.

Bob Good has had over a year in office, and simply isn’t getting the job done. There has been too much grandstanding and not enough results. We must do better. 

Strong National Defense
Peace through strength, with a strong military and national defense against Russia and China
Equipping our troops so they can protect our country
Supporting veterans when they return home

According to Dan Moy’s website – Bob Good, sponsored bill to block security support to Ukraine and left Americans vulnerable by voting against cyber-defense funding
Voted to defund our military and strip America of needed missile defenses, sea power, and combat capability
Voted against giving troops a 2.7% raise that would help them survive our highest inflation rate in 40 years

Dan Moy
Workforce Development and Excellence in Education beyond 4-year colleges
Bringing back manufacturing and creating jobs
Limiting regulations that stifle growth and making sure small businesses can thrive

According to Dan Moy’s website – Bob Good, has been MIA on this important topic

Dan Moy
Focus on real problems in the 5th district – opioids, improving our schools, empowering parents, and addressing mental health needs.
Vision for the future that keeps our country, communities, and families safe and prosperous.

According to Dan Moy’s website – Bob Good, voted against supporting veterans with PTSD or spinal cord injuries
Voted against bills aimed at combating the opioid crisis in Virginia’s 5th District

The Republican margin of victory in Virginia’s 5th District has continued to get tighter in each race, with Bob Good winning by only 52% of the vote in an R+7 district that should have been a safe win. Good has proven to be an ineffective leader, which Democrats will exploit if he is the candidate again in 2022. We must not settle for Good. It’s time to elect our best, stand with our troops, focus on the economy, and lead from strength. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

What are your priorities?

Securing a strong national defense.

As tensions rise globally, a strong national defense is more important than ever. I am uniquely positioned to speak to this and ensure we are safe both at home and abroad as our enemies become bolder. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Preserving the sanctity of life.

Every life is God-given and sacred. I will passionately work to protect life from conception, defund Planned Parenthood, and promote adoption. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Listening to you.

It is not enough to simply vote right on issues. I am running to listen to your needs and fight for YOU in DC. I will always be receptive, caring and responsive to your needs and concerns as YOUR representative in the United States Congress. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Defending our gun right.

The most essential right that protects all others is our 2nd Amendment guarantees. After seeing citizens firsthand unable to protect themselves overseas, I will adamantly defend our right to bear arms and protect our families. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Championing individual liberty.

Radical leftists are trying to gain control over our lives, control our businesses, and undermine our religious freedom. I will always stand between you and those who want to control your faith, livelihood, personal decisions, and businesses. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Balancing our budget.

In a few short years, our nation’s interest payments alone will consume our entire national budget. We must address this before our children inherit a bankrupt America. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Standing with law enforcement & first responders.

The Thin Blue Line is what stands between safe communities and total chaos. We have seen this line truly tested in recent years by politicians and criminals alike. I will always stand strong in support of our police and first responders. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Keeping political agenda out of our schools.

I will stand with Governor Youngkin on the federal level to keep political agendas out of our schools, ensure curriculum transparency, and support school choice. Schools should teach children how to think, not what to think. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Working with Governor Glenn Youngkin.

I was a proud supporter of Gov. Youngkin, and led his Veteran’s Coalition for our region, and will work closely with him to ensure his four year agenda for Virginia is supported from my office in DC. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Bringing back manufacturing.

It’s time to rebuild the manufacturing capacity in the US and bring our jobs back from Mexico and China. I will make bringing these jobs back to Southside one of my top priorities once in Congress. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Renewing our economy.

The Biden economy is devastating families and killing businesses as we suffer the highest inflation in over 40 years. I will fight to ensure we quit printing and sending out “free” money, get the government’s foot off the throat of small business, and lower taxes on hard working Americans. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Finish the border wall.

Biden’s open borders agenda has created a border crisis WORSE than ever as he has endangered American families by trying to suspend deportations, stop repairing gates, and weaken immigration enforcement. I will lead to finish the wall, stop illegal immigration, and secure our borders. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)

Military Experience / Branch / Years of Service / Rank / Type of Discharge: Colonel Daniel “Dan” Moy retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2016 with 27- years’ operations and policy experience specializing in national and international security operations, strategic partnerships, and the defense acquisition, planning, and budgeting process. He has deep expertise in counterterrorism, cyber, and unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, policies, and programs. Among his many leadership assignments, he commanded counterinsurgency operations in Afghanistan, served as Deputy Military Advisor to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and led the Secretary of the Air Force acquisition portfolio for command and control and unmanned aerial systems as Deputy Director for Information Dominance.

He is a recipient of the Legion of Merit, the Defense Superior Service Medal, and the Bronze Star. Colonel Moy recently earned his master’s degree in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and is a 2019 graduate of Lead Virginia’s public service program, joining the ranks of hundreds of community and business leaders across the commonwealth committed to promoting social capital, civic engagement, and practical problem solving.

Colonel Moy received his military commission through Officer Training School, San Antonio, Texas in 1989. He is a career Air Force Navigator with over 4,000 flying hours in the RC-135 “Rivet Joint” and E-3A “AWACS.”

In addition to his air operations background, Colonel Moy served as an Associate Professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs from 2002 to 2005 where he helped mentor over 1,000 future Air Force leaders, instructing courses in military history, ancient warfare, the Holocaust, and the history of Christianity. In conjunction with his contributions to officer training, Colonel Moy was one of ten service academy instructors selected to author the Chairman of the Joint Staff’s updated handbook on the profession of arms and leadership, The Armed Forces Officer.

Among his notable leadership assignments, Colonel Moy was assigned to the Joint Staff at the Pentagon from 2005 to 2008 where he served as the Deputy Executive Assistant for two Vice Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During that period, he served as special briefer for airborne reconnaissance operations to then Secretary of Defense, Donald H. Rumsfeld, and led the Reconnaissance Operations Division (J-3) as Assistant Division Chief.

From 2008 to 2009, Colonel Moy commanded an Afghanistan Provincial Reconstruction Team under the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division. His specialized team, consisting of 100 Army, Air Force, National Guard, interagency, and Afghan personnel, worked with the Afghan government, tribal leaders, and United Nations field representatives to formulate and implement an integrated civil-military strategy for development, governance, and counterinsurgency initiatives in the Pakistan border region.

Colonel Moy was assigned to the Military Staff Committee at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in New York from 2009 to 2012. During that period, he served as the Deputy Military Advisor to the then U.S. Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Susan E. Rice. His leadership was instrumental in furthering U.S. multilateral engagement and policy priorities for international peacekeeping operations, protection of civilians, and mass atrocity prevention.

During his last Air Force assignment from 2012 to 2016, Colonel Moy served as Division Chief and Deputy Director for the Assistant Secretary’s Information Dominance Directorate in the Pentagon. As deputy for the civilian 2-star senior executive, he led a team of 80 civilian and military personnel and managed a $63 billion acquisition portfolio including over 70 command and control, cyber, and reconnaissance programs, along with advanced aerial systems and sensors delivering essential warfighting capability to the combatant commands.

What are your thought on government transparency? 

The surest way to keep our government accountable and to reduce corruption and malfeasance is through a continuous call for government transparency and public access to elected officials and policymaking. Elected officials work for the people and must be held accountable in all areas in order to earn the trust of those they serve. (Provided 5.8.2022)

 

What are your thoughts on national defense? Professes absolute support for national defense and veterans.

The preamble of our Constitution tells us that one of our government’s top priorities is to provide for the common defense. Our Republican Creed in Virginia asserts that peace is best preserved through a strong national defense. My 27 years of military service were predicated upon that principle, and it is one of the reasons I am now running for Congress. We have the lowest number of military veterans serving on Capitol Hill since WWII and it shows. We need to be unwavering when it comes to supporting our national security and the men and women of our military who have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution. (Provided 5.8.2022)

Renewing our economy. The Biden economy is devastating families and killing businesses as we suffer the highest inflation in over 40 years.

What are your thoughts on the role the family plays in America? 

The family is the cornerstone of our social fabric and the strength of our Republic. Strong families foster individual responsibility, stronger communities, and a vibrant nation. God has ordained that families serve as the bedrock of our communities and way of life. Parents are the first and foremost authority in determining their children’s health, well-being, and education, and those rights are essential in preserving the liberties we cherish as Americans. (Provided 5.8.2022)

 

What are your thoughts on equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity, as opposed to equal outcomes?

Our Declaration of Independence proclaims that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Because these rights are divinely ordained, they are immutable. Equality under the law and the right to equal justice and opportunity is a fundamental building block of our American Republic. As Republicans, we champion the free enterprise system and the tenet that every citizen has the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is not government’s role to ensure equal outcomes. Only individuals can determine their own path and pursuits, in light of the freedoms that our government affords. (Provided 5.8.2022)

What are your thoughts on the 2nd Amendment? Professed absolute support of the 2nd Amendment.

Defending our gun right. The most essential right that protects all others is our 2nd Amendment guarantees. After seeing citizens firsthand unable to protect themselves overseas, I will adamantly defend our right to bear arms and protect our families. (Source: https://www.danmoyforcongress.com/)
