NEW ORLEANS ADVOCATE -- Taylor, 60, is making his first run for office after returning to Covington, where he graduated from high school, and launching a small internet-based business manufacturing tin signs. Before that, he was a writer and comedian on the West Coast for most of his professional life.
Divorced with two children, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in History from San Francisco State University later in life and taught for a time.
“I noticed a political sign, and that’s something I always want to get into and get involved in the community,” said Taylor, an independent. He said he’s self-financing a shoestring campaign as “a devoted local trying to improve the lives of St. Tammany residents and trying to hold on to what makes this such a great place to live.”
