West Des Moines, IA – Today, Representative Rob Taylor announced he is running for re-election to the Iowa House. Taylor said, “Last week the Iowa Legislature gaveled in to continue work for the people of Iowa. As I reflected last week, I couldn’t help but be humbled by the faith that my constituents have put in me to represent them at the Capitol. Iowa is on the go, and we need elected officials serving all Iowans to keep building that momentum for a greater future. I’m proud to have been part of that movement as a State Representative.

“With the recent announcement of Congressman Latham’s retirement and the announcement that the Office of Secretary of State will be vacated, I’ve been blessed to have many friends, colleagues and constituents encourage me consider running for higher office. After many days of thoughtful consideration and conversations with my family, the best option for my wife, children and constituents is for me to stay in the Iowa House of Representatives and continue fighting for common sense, down-to-earth practical solutions for the people of Iowa.  My passion lies in Iowa and to the constituents of District 44 that sent me to the capitol; therefore, I will once again be a candidate for the Iowa House of Representatives District 44.

“As we forge ahead this year, I will continue to focus on crafting and supporting legislation that will result in good paying jobs that help restore and grow Iowa’s economy.  I will continue to practice common-sense business principles and apply them to state government, practicing the philosophy that we spend less than we take in. There will also be much work to do in regards to the changes required in healthcare because of the impact of the Accountable Care Act on all Iowans.  Finally, I will continue to work on the restoration of Iowa as a leader in education and technology, creating stability for taxpayers and employers that will provide the foundation for prosperity for Iowa for many years to come.

“I believe that I can best serve the people of Iowa and do the greatest good by continuing to serve as a State Representative in the Iowa General Assembly. Thank you to all who have faith in my leadership abilities and continue to encourage me to do the greatest good.”

Representative Taylor represents Iowa House District 44, which includes Waukee, the Dallas County portion of West Des Moines and Dallas County portion of Clive. For more information, or to learn more about Rob, please visit
