Taylor will create opportunity for all Kentuckians

Former statehouse Rep. Jeff Taylor has always been passionate about creating job opportunities for the residents of Kentucky.

Taylor is running for the state’s 8th House District which includes portions of Christian and Trigg counties.

During his 31-year tenure as an economic development professional at the Tennessee Valley Authority, Jeff held positions in public relations, marketing and community development.  He is responsible for the development of the Quick Turn “Spec Building” Marketing Strategy which focused on rail.

“I am running because I want to ensure that the state has bills and policies that provide opportunities for any Kentuckian that desires to improve their life,” Taylor said. “I am the product of opportunities afforded to me by many.  I am running to serve and do likewise.”

Over the years, Taylor has been actively engaged in his community. He has served on the Board of Directors of Business Retention International, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Hopkinsville Minority Economic Council.  He also served on the Western Kentucky Economic Development Council, the South Kentucky Economic Development Council, and the James E. Bruce Convention Center.

Taylor is a graduate of both Leadership Hopkinsville and Leadership Kentucky.  There he had the opportunity to develop relationships with leaders across this region and state. Taylor intends to put those relationships to work for the residents of the 8th District.

Currently serving on the Labor Relations Committee of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Sanctuary Inc., and the Leadership Kentucky Board of Directors, Taylor is the vice president of the Bryan Street Neighborhood Association and Chairman of the Christian County Democratic  Executive Committee. He is also a member of the Ft. Campbell Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.

With a deep love for Kentucky, fellow friends and neighbors, Taylor wants to make the state a better place to live.

The pension controversy is one example of shameful state legislation with a lack of transparency.

Taylor will ensure that legislation in the future is open and fully vetted. He’s concerned about the state of education where budgets are cut and teachers are left to fend for themselves.
