About Mark Taylor

Originally from St. George, Mark attended BYU on a Leadership Scholarship, then moved to the D.C. area, where he married a beautiful and charming frenchwoman, Elodie. Shortly after their wedding Mark began studying law and economics at the Antonin Scalia Law School (formerly known as George Mason University School of Law) in Arlington, Virginia. Mark and Elodie started their family, and he was hired straight out of law school to investigate and prosecute civil antitrust cases for the U.S. Government. 

He did that for 11 years. While they had a good life in Northern Virginia, when their older boys started attending school they realized it was not where they wanted to raise their four children in the long-term. They searched for a more conservative, rural environment and sense of community where their four children would learn the value of hard work and be less exposed to the left-leaning ideas that tend to go with living in large, metropolitan areas.  They chose to live in Jefferson county because they cherish its rural environment and its conservative values rooted in personal liberty and self-reliance. 

The Taylors love floating the dry bed and playing at Rigby Lake in the summer and skiing at Kelly Canyon and sledding in the winter. They love living between two beautiful LDS temples, and feel that Jefferson county is a safe place to raise their four children. 

As Jefferson county continues to grow rapidly, they want to do their part to keep it the place they chose to live and raise their family. As Prosecuting Attorney, Mark will protect our community’s shared conservative values; promote efficient, accountable, and transparent stewardship of taxpayer dollars and county resources; and work hand-in-hand with law enforcement to protect our community and deliver both criminal and civil justice for all residents of Jefferson County. We can do better!
