Taylor was elected to the Manitoba legislature in the 1988 provincial election, defeating incumbent New Democrat Myrna Phillips by 506 votes. The Liberals increased their parliamentary strength from one to twenty in this election, and Taylor sat with the official opposition for the next two years. He does not appear to have played a major role in the affairs of the legislature. In the 1990 provincial election, he lost to NDP candidate Jean Friesen by 1045 votes. He has not sought a return to politics since this time.
Taylor subsequently became involved in water conservation, serving as Executive Director of the Red River Basin Commission. He has also worked on the Pembina River Basin Advisory Board and the Water Strategy Advisory Committee.
