Moran was reappointed by Governor Roy Cooper and will continue to represent Division 1, which is comprised of 14 counties in the northeastern corner of the state. He originally joined the Board of Transportation in 2017.
Moran will work with the N.C. Department of Transportation staff to make decisions about transportation policies and priorities. He serves with 19 other individuals from across the state who represent each of NCDOT’s 14 geographical highway divisions and six areas of statewide interest.
The governor appoints members representing the 14 highway divisions, while the speaker of the N.C. House and the N.C. Senate President Pro-Tempore each appoint three at-large members.

Moran is also a licensed real estate broker, and he works with his wife Caroline as a real estate team with Village Realty in Nags Head.
A lifelong resident of Dare County, Moran graduated from Wanchese Christian Academy and completed law enforcement courses at the College of the Albemarle and the North Carolina Justice Academy. He serves as the vice chairman of the Roanoke Island Community Center Board and as a member of the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs Committee.
