Ron Moeser was a Toronto City Councillor for Ward 44 Scarborough East in Toronto, Canada from 1988 to 2017.

Moeser was first elected to what was then the Scarborough City Council in 1988 representing the West Rouge community. He sat on Scarborough City Council for nine years and chaired the Waterfront committee. Moeser and his wife Heather played an active role in the preservation of the Rouge Valley.[1] By working with community associations, they helped create Community Associations in Scarborough (C.O.S.C.A) that helped pave the way for development of Rouge National Urban Park.[1]

Following the amalgamation of Scarborough into the new City of Toronto in 1997, Moeser was elected a Toronto City Councillor and became chair of the Scarborough Community Council. He was defeated in the 2003 municipal election by Gay Cowbourne but returned to office in the 2006 vote when Cowbourne retired, and defeated Diana Hall by 61 votes. In his last term Moeser served as vice-chair of the Scarborough Community Council.

He was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2016[2] and died on April 18, 2017, aged 74.[3] Toronto City Council paid tribute to Councillor Moeser in a City Council meeting on April 26, 2017.[4]
