Taylor announces candidacy for magistrate
Born and raised in Woodford County, Liles knows how special it is to grow up in this community. That’s why he and his wife (Robin) chose Midway to raise their son (Bennett, 11 months) and daughter (Jolee, 4).
The proud product of Woodford County Public Schools, Liles continued his education at Asbury University, where he received a BA in media communications and a Masters in public administration from Morehead State University.
Liles has extensive governmental experience, climbing the ranks of state government and serving in multiple roles within Governor Steve Beshear’s administration, culminating with his service as Deputy Chief of Staff to Lt. Governor Crit Luallen. Liles also gained valuable legislative experience as Chief of Staff to the House Majority Whip.
He now serves Kentucky’s working families as the Political Coordinator of the Kentucky state AFL-CIO. Liles believes the greatest responsibility of the Fiscal Court is crafting a balanced budget meeting current needs, while investing in the future. He’ll strive to set priorities that balance investments in public safety, education (early childhood, K-12, & post-secondary), infrastructure, senior services, public health, middle-income housing, parks and recreation, competitive wages for county employees, and economic development.
