It comes with great pleasure to introduce our next highlighted legislator, Senator Greg Taylor. Senator Taylor was first elected in 2011, where he has proudly represented District 33. This district includes Northwest Indianapolis which includes the area around the Indianapolis Museum of Art and The Children’s Museum. Senator Taylor is married to Danielle and they have three children together: Jackson, Savannah, and Estella. He went to Law School at Indiana University. Senator Taylor is also a member of the Great Light Church, the Indiana State Bar Association, and the National Association of Bond Lawyers.
Like Senator Ron Alting who we featured in the last issue, Senator Taylor is very passionate about bias-motivated crimes prompting him to author Senate Bill 469. Although this bill did not make it any farther than the First Reading, this bill protected individuals who have suffered from personal injury because of a biased crime. During the 2018 Session, Senator Taylor also authored Senate Resolution 60 which called for an interim study committee to make recommendations on legislation in this year’s session. When asked why he authored the resolution, Senator Taylor told the Indiana Senate Democrats, “This is a huge step forward for all those in Indiana who has ever been wrongly harmed or had their property vandalized due to the color of their skin, their religious affiliation or their sexual orientation”. We are very lucky to have a Senator who is so passionate about resolving the issue of bias-motivated crimes. On behalf of the Campaign for Hoosier Families, we would like to thank Senator Taylor for all the hard work he has done.
