Mary Taylor on Principles & Values
Served as Director of Insurance, while Lt. Governor
Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor stepped down as director of the Ohio Department of Insurance today as she seeks the Republican nomination for governor. Taylor, who remains lieutenant governor, faces a potential 2018 primary.
Taylor's resignation permits her to now accept campaign contributions from insurance-industry sources and employees.
She took a big pay cut upon resigning. As a cabinet director, Taylor earned $150,405 a year rather than the lieutenant governor's
salary of $78,021.
Gov. Kasich, who will be forced from office by term limits in January 2019, has said he supports his
No. 2 amid the field of gubernatorial candidates. "I am grateful for her work and will continue to rely on her advice and counsel as lieutenant governor," Kasich said in a statement.
