Sylvester Taylor II
(Board term expires 2023)
My name is Sylvester Taylor II. My wife and I have lived in Hazelwood School District
for more than a quarter-century. We have raised three daughters who attended school
in the district.
I have been a member of The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for more
than three decades. Prior to joining the Hazelwood School District Board of Education, I
served as a member of the BlackJack Fire District Board of Directors and state
legislator for Missouri’s 80th District. As a member of the Missouri House of
Representatives, I served on the Local Government, Agriculture Business, Workforce
Development & Financial Institutions committees.
Currently, I am Chairman of The Electrical Workers Minority Caucus. In that role, I
participate in a mentoring program with the Missouri Division of Youth Services. The
program helps young people find jobs in organized labor when they enter the workforce.
I am a proud member of New Salem M. B. Church.
