SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - One week after being disqualified to serve on the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors, Jeremy Taylor has officially resigned.
Friday's announcement came after it was ruled two weeks ago that Taylor's voter registration was canceled.
The ruling came after it was determined Taylor was living in a home outside of the district he serves.
The hearing was held after Maria Rundquist, from Sioux City, filed a State of Iowa Voter Registration Challenge.
Last week, County Auditor Pat Gill announced Taylor had been disqualified as a member of the Board of Supervisors.
Taylor says the last 6 weeks have not been easy for his family, and this is what ultimately made him make this decision.
"It's a bump in the road, but it's something that people encouraged me you know being in a protracted legal battle potentially, as well as what it was doing with the family wasn't a good way forward, and so I think it's time for both the community, and for my family, as well as this next step to move forward," said Jeremy Taylor.
Taylor says he will now focus on his candidacy in the fourth district congressional race, which he has been a candidate for, for over a year.
