TAYLOR BID FOR IOWA HOUSE BUILDS MOMENTUM

West Des Moines, IA– Support and organization for Rob Taylor continues to develop since first announcing his candidacy for District 44 of the Iowa House of Representatives this past fall.  This week he received the endorsement of West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer, Waukee Mayor Bill Peard and Clive Mayor Scott Cirksena. In addition, Taylor set the fundraising pace for all other new Republican candidates in Iowa.

“Rob understands the complex issues of the day; jobs, the economy, taxes and spending. He and his family have given a great deal back to their community and are themselves the definition of community service. Rob will serve the people of his District and the people of Iowa very well,” said West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer.

Having spent the last decade as small business leader, Taylor understands that Iowa must maintain its business-friendly climate, helping to grow and attract new business to the 44th District.

The support of the citizens of the 44th District is also illustrated in Taylor’s fundraising numbers, having raised nearly $30,000 in donations from the people of Iowa and the 44th District.  These numbers, as reported to the Iowa Ethics and Disclosure Board, clearly show a strong groundswell of support for the Taylor for House Campaign.

“I am humbled to receive the nod of approval of elected leaders like Mayor Gaer and other community leaders across the District as well as those who have given and believed in my campaign. As a father of a young family, I understand that we must return Iowa to its educational prominence. I will work to promote business growth and development in order to keep our outstanding graduates in the state.  We can do this by reducing burdensome regulations and taxation on job- producing businesses and industries,” said Taylor.

Born and raised in Des Moines, Taylor had the benefit of living in urban Des Moines but also tended to the family farm in Osceola. Rob learned to value hard work and a commitment to family. Taylor graduated from Lincoln High School in 1989. He received his Associates Degree from Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny, his Bachelor of Science from Upper Iowa University and his Masters of Business Leadership from William Penn University. Taylor is a sales director for a petroleum distributor in central Iowa.  Taylor and his wife, Christi, have four children.

Pulling off huge cookie walk is team effort

… Among the first-time volunteers were Rob and Dr. Christi Taylor and their four children. “We like to take on service projects as a family and we thought this would be perfect,” Christi explained. “You get to bake cookies, you get to help at the church, and the money goes to a great cause. What could be better?”

The family began baking during Thanksgiving week, completing 12 dozen by late Friday. One of the Taylor family favorites, chocolate almond biscotti, was entered in the cookie of the year contest. A large plate of the biscotti was among the numerous goodies prepared by the family for the sale day.

The Taylor baking crew included daughters Melani, 20, at home from college, and Kati, 17, a Waukee High School senior. Sons Ben, 11, and Will, 6, also helped with the baking and decorating.

Ben reported that making sure the cookies didn’t burn was his favorite task, while Will became the chief “go-to guy” for whatever was needed. Ben and Will also volunteered at the cookie walk on Saturday morning, along with their mom and dad.
