Former Strasburg town councilman and mayor Tim Taylor plans to run for a seat on the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors.

Taylor announced his intentions Wednesday to seek election to the District 6 seat on the board. District 6 covers Strasburg and the surrounding area in northern Shenandoah County.

Taylor, 60, is the instructional technology supervisor for Shenandoah County Public Schools.

Taylor graduated from Strasburg High School in 1976 and graduated from James Madison University in 1980 with a degree in elementary education. He earned his master of arts in education and human development from The George Washington University in 1997.

Taylor, a lifelong county resident, served five terms on the Strasburg Town Council and then two terms as mayor, from 2008 to 2016. Taylor mentioned that family members spent time in public service. Taylor’s mother Eunice Taylor represented District 6 on the Board of Supervisors. His sister Mary Beth Price recently retired as county administrator after working for 40 years in public administration, first for Strasburg and then for Shenandoah County.

Taylor said in his announcement that his experience in the public service sector helped him establish personal and professional relationships that would serve him well if elected to the board.

Taylor thanked board Chairman Conrad Helsley for his years of service representing District 6 as its supervisor. Helsley announced Tuesday that he would not seek re-election to the District 6 seat.

Taylor asked anyone with questions or comments to contact him by phone at 540-325-4397 or email at
