Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lloyd Taylor was born Lloyd Irvin Taylor on June 22, 1943 in San Diego, CA to Glenn L. Taylor and Marie G. (Chapman Turner) Taylor.

EARLY LIFE
His family moved to La Mesa, CA where Lloyd worked for five years delivering newspapers while in elementary, junior high and high school. He saved his money for college. At Helix High School in La Mesa, CA he participated in student government and in three Junior Achievement companies. He learned how a business operates. In 1961 he edited a Junior Achievement newspaper which made a profit and was distributed to 22 high schools in San Diego County. He was awarded a $2,000 scholarship from the Crown Zellerbach Foundation to be used for college. He entered science fairs with his research and displays on air pollution and smog.

EDUCATION
In 1965 he graduated from San Diego State University with B.S. in journalism and minor in business administration. While at the University of California at Los Angeles, he took and passed the CPA exam before he graduated in 1967 with a Masters of Accounting in Business. Lloyd worked as a Certified Public Accountant for Peat, Marwick, Mitchell CPAs in Los Angeles. In 1973 he graded with a Juris Doctor degree from Loyola University School of Law in Los Angeles.

PROFESSIONAL LIFE
After graduation he moved to San Francisco where he worked for a CPA firm while studying for the bar exam. In 1974 he opened his own office as a lawyer and CPA specializing in business law. He enjoyed fighting the Internal Revenue Service on behalf of clients. He won judgments against the California Secretary of State to permit Libertarian Party candidates on the ballot in San Francisco and Santa Cruz counties.

PHILOSOPHY
While at UCLA he read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand which molded his political views. In San Francisco, he helped to found the Libertarian Party of California and drafted their by-laws.

POLITICAL
He ran for County Supervisor in San Francisco as a "Libertarian Lawyer/CPA". His platform of drastically reducing government, selling the municipal transportation system and city parks, legalizing drug, victimless crimes, and prostitution was too radical for San Francisco. He lost the election to Harvey Milk and the incumbents.

Lloyd Taylor's 1975 campaign platform:
"My philosophy: Repeal Compulsory Taxes. Sell Muni, the Airport, the Port and Yerba Buena Center to private enterprise. Sell the schools to private enterprise. Repeal city payroll, business and Gross Receipts taxes. To the Chief of Police: 'Make the Streets Safe from Violent Crime or You're Fired.' Abolish property taxes. Cut supervisors' salaries in half. Prohibit the use of tax dollars to enforce victimless crime laws. Fewer county employees; better business climate, free market economy; abolition of city permit bureaucracy; and lower taxes mean more jobs."

He later ran the San Francisco county portion of the state ballot drive to qualify Proposition 13 to reduce property taxes from 3% to 1% of market value.

Katherine Banks painting
Hi, the painting of Katherine Banks you have used is not actually her. I recall seeing this on the internet a while ago and recall it to be one of her daughters,

William McCoy
Sir,

With all due respect, neither one of the photos you show of William McCoy are of the William McCoy who was the father of Daniel and grandfather of Randall (feud fame). The one is a photo of a a William McCoy who fought in the Civil War out of the state of Texas and our William McCoy died long before the Civil War started. The other photo is also of a man who lived much later than our William McCoy.

Delorme Wv
The Delorme aka Edgarton Cemetery in Wv is located on the left near the Railroad Track Crossing behind a few homes and beside a church. I just visited there this past weekend. The Cemetery is very old and isn't very well keep. I hope this helps.
