UGA Employee Talks about Political Past

ATHENS-  People are following the national  political campaigns with great interest, but one UGA faculty member has lived the system.

Bob Taylor has been a number of things throughout his life: a radio DJ, a campaign press officer, and briefly trained to become an air traffic controller, but even in high school he knew what he wanted to be: a journalist.

He left that life behind, however, to work for Senator Strom Thurmond in 1994. It was Thurmond’s last election, and Taylor speaks fondly of his time as his press officer.

And from his generation on down, he has some advice for the students at UGA: do what you love, and you will never be working.

After leaving Senator Thurmond, Taylor came to UGA, where he has been for the past seventeen years
