Americans for Tax Reform congratulates Mr. Jeremy Taylor for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. By signing the Pledge, he has made a written commitment to oppose all tax increases and help Iowans’ keep more of their hard-earned money. Taylor is running in a contested Republican primary for Iowa’s 4th congressional district seat.
“I want to congratulate Jeremy Taylor for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, and in doing so, affirming his commitment to protect taxpayers in Iowa’s 4th congressional district,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.
Candidates running for office often say they will not raise taxes, but tend to turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. As Pledge signers, candidates and incumbents make a written commitment to oppose any and all tax increases.
“By signing the Pledge, Jeremy demonstrates that he will fight for all Iowans in Congress by working to keep their taxes low and grow the U.S. economy at historic rates. I challenge all candidates running in Iowa’s 4th District to make this important commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.
The Pledge is offered to every candidate for state and federal office and to all incumbents. Nearly 1,400 elected officials, from state representatives to governors and US Senators, have signed the Pledge.
Taylor is currently a country supervisor in Woodbury County, Iowa’s fifth largest county. Taylor previously served in the Iowa House of Representatives, where he advocated against bloated government spending and for balanced budgets. A specialist in the energy industry, Taylor dedicated himself to finding operational inefficiencies in energy usage by the Sioux City School District.
ATR will continue to follow this race closely and will provide additional updates as more candidates sign the Pledge.
