Taylor won’t seek reappointment

Jimmy Taylor, in his eighth year on the board, announced at the end of Tuesday morning’s marathon meeting “it’s just time” to step away. He said he won’t seek a reappointment from Gov. Phil Bryant to head the commission.

Taylor was appointed by former Gov. Haley Barbour in 2006 and was reappointed four years later by Bryant. His term will end June 30.

“To find the right person, you need to give enough notice and all. I have served eight years but it’s time to move on,” he said.

Taylor has kicked around the idea of resigning from his position for some time, but felt the timing wasn’t right until recently.
