Casper R. "Cas" Taylor, Jr. joined the Alexander & Cleaver in June 2003 after
serving in the Maryland House of Delegates for 28 years. As a native resident of
Cumberland, he became the first Speaker of the House from Western Maryland in
100 years. He went on to serve as Speaker for nine years — at that time, longer than any
other in the history of Maryland. His legislative career is filled with accomplishments
in economic and business development and health care growth and reform. He created
the One Maryland program of economic development and job creation incentives. He
created the Maryland Science, Engineering & Technology Development Corporation
(TEDCO) to promote technology transfer and commercialization among Maryland's
universities, federal labs, and the state's energy technology sector. He spearheaded
efforts to achieve a 10% reduction in Maryland's personal income tax.
