Clyde Taylor seeking second term
A Glynn County commissioner who will complete his first term of office at the end of the year hopes to continue to represent the community another four years.

Commissioner Clyde Taylor, a Republican, announced Tuesday he will seek reelection to the at-large post 1 commission post.

Qualifying for political office begins March 3 and concludes at noon March 7.

The Republican and Democratic primaries are scheduled for May 20.

Taylor, serving a third consecutive year on the county finance committee, said he has demonstrated "sound fiscal integrity and wise management of Glynn County resources." The finance committee reviews projects and other costs and makes recommendations on their fate to the full commission.

He also is former vice-chair of the seven-member of commission, serving in that capacity 2011-2012, and served two years on the Brunswick and Glynn County Joint Water and Sewer Commission.

Taylor headed the group that played a major role in developing the Glynn County Strategic Plan and continues to chair the group, which he said led to the creation of the Gateways Initiative, a plan to improve the community's major entrance points.

Other accomplishments Taylor lists during the first three years include the creation of the new Marshes of Glynn Libraries system, a single-county region that only includes the public libraries in Brunswick and on St. Simons Island.

A native of Brunswick, Taylor is married to the former Sue Wells. The couple, married 55 years, have three adult children and three grandchildren.

Taylor is one of three county commissioners up for reelection this year. District 3 Commissioner Richard Strickland and District 4 Commissioner Mary Hunt have said previously they plan to run again.
