Re-elect Christopher Taylor Democrat for Mayor Ann Arbor

I came to Ann Arbor for college when I was 18.  Like many of us, I quickly fell in love with the town. Thirty three years later, I couldn't be happier living, working, and raising a family here in Ann Arbor.

I am a partner in the law firm of Hooper Hathaway, located on Main Street. My practice focuses on estate planning and the representation of small, local businesses. Before joining Hooper Hathaway, I worked at Butzel Long in Ann Arbor, Ropes & Gray in Boston, and as a law clerk for Judge Bruce Selya on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

My wife of 24 years, Eva Rosenwald (townie and local actor) and I live on Brooklyn Avenue with our two children, Henry and Ruby.  Both have attended Ann Arbor Public Schools. Ruby attends Community High School. Henry will graduate from Pioneer this June and attend the University of Michigan. We live on the same block as Eva's childhood home. Her parents still live there. My parents moved to Ann Arbor in 2000. They live two doors down the street.

I have earned four degrees from the University of Michigan:

* B.A. in English, with high distinction
* B.M.A. in Vocal Performance, with honors
* M.A. in American History
* J.D., cum laude

While an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, I served as President of the Inter-Cooperative Council, a campus-wide, 500+ member student housing cooperative. While at the University of Michigan School of Law, I served as Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Law Review.

I don't have much time outside of family, work, and elected office, but when I do have a spare moment, I like to perform small roles in local theaters, read contemporary fiction (most recently, A Gentleman in Moscow), and play FIFA18.
