Police And Labor Unions Call For NW Iowa County Supervisor To Resign

Sioux City, Iowa — More community leaders are calling for action surrounding a Woodbury County supervisor whose wife was convicted last month of voter fraud.

At Tuesday night’s county board meeting, two unions representing law enforcement and labor called for the resignation of Jeremy Taylor, who was first elected to the all-Republican board in 2014. Taylor wasn’t swayed.

Board Chairman Matthew Ung says having Taylor in office is a distraction to the work that needs to be done by local government.

The board decided not to vote on a resolution brought forward by the county auditor to call on the state attorney general to investigate the Taylors as a way to remove him from office. They said the public can file a petition through district court instead. Ung was one of three board members who previously called on Taylor to resign.

The board accepted the resignation of Taylor as vice chair, a move that was mainly symbolic, since there are only two more meetings left this year. New leadership gets picked in January. Taylor’s wife, Kim, was convicted on November 21st on 52 counts of voter fraud connected to elections in 2020 when her husband’s name was on the ballot.
