Statement from Dick Taylor
November 23, 2019
Based on my 27 years running our family business, military record, experience as a county department head and knowledge of the district, I’ve been urged by many community leaders and friends to run for District 1 of the Kern County Board of Supervisors. Having first moved into the district in 1979 after my honorable discharge from the Marine Corps, I consider it a great honor to be approached to run for this office.
However, after a lot of thought and research, I have decided to not seek election in March 2020 as District 1 Supervisor. My hope is that a candidate arises to represent this incredible district, who possesses the necessary experience, character, trustworthiness, maturity and statesmanship befitting the highest leadership position in the county. I want to sincerely thank everyone who has offered their support and I continue to be proud of all the work happening in our great county.
Sincerely, Dick Taylor
