Parish Moffitt, as US NAVY veteran, has served as Rep. Linda Johnson’s District Liaison since January of 2019 representing Johnson at numerous events and meetings across the district and working with her to craft solutions to challenges faced by Cabarrus County residents and small businesses. Additionally, Parish is a pilot with American Airlines, the owner of Aero Crews, LLC, and a volunteer firefighter/ Paramedic with the Odell Volunteer Fire Department. He serves as Rep. Johnson’s liaison on the Western Cabarrus Minority Council and is an active volunteer with veterans’ organizations, civic groups, and his church.
Being the District Liaison for Rep Johnson gives Parish a unique perspective as a candidate in the 2020 Republican Primary. While Parish is not an incumbent, he has had the opportunity over the last two years to build relationships with multiple Legislators and staff in Raleigh. He will continue fighting for the same values and ideals that his boss, Rep. Johnson, was fighting for. He has said many times that the shoes to be filled are mighty big; however, he feels ready for the challenge. He also acknowledges that a person could not ask for a better mentor over the last few years in Rep. Johnson.
Parish and his wife, Jacqueline, are residents of Concord. They are the parents of two adult daughters. Their older daughter is a public-school teacher in the Raleigh area and their younger daughter is a cosmetologist in Charlotte. Parish is a graduate of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with a B.S. in Technical Management and received his Master of Public Administration from the University of North Carolina.
When Parish is asked why he is running, he always says it is for the people. His mentor Rep. Linda Johnson always cared for the people of the state, county, and district and he does too. "I just want to do right by the people and have them be proud to call me their representative. I do not have an agenda, I just want to help the people come up with reasonable solutions to their problems", he said.
