Taylor Criddle’s political campaign experience an asset for 2020
NFIB is pleased to announce its new grassroots manager for Nevada.
He is Taylor Criddle, who was born in Reno, grew up in Grass Valley, attended Chico State, and graduated with bachelors’ degrees in political science and criminal justice. Right after graduating Taylor plunged into political campaign work and didn’t let up.
- In 2014, he worked on political programs benefiting U.S. Rep. Doug LaMalfa, California State Sen. Jim Nielsen, and California Assemblyman Jim Gallagher.
- In 2015, he was called upon to Capitol Hill in D.C. to help U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen in Minnesota.
- In 2016, Taylor was recruited to help U.S. Rep. David Valadao win his reelection.
- A year later, he was brought in to assist California Assemblyman Dante Acosta.
- Last year, he managed a staff of 18 field representatives for the Republican National Committee.
- On June 10, 2019, Criddle joined NFIB as its grassroots manager for Nevada and California. He replaces Elizabeth Parks, who now heads up NFIB grassroots programs in the Northeast.
For NFIB, Criddle will work to increase NFIB-member activism in the legislative process and to recruit new small-business owners to the cause. His job will include rallying the troops to stop bad-for-small-business bills from passing the Nevada Legislature, as well as helping to push good-for-Main-Street measures to passage.
“We need grassroots managers with political campaign experience as never before,” said Randi Thompson, NFIB’s Nevada state director. “As we have seen, Carson City has completely shifted to an anti-small-business agenda, and if we are to reverse that, we’ll need to call on the experience of someone like Taylor Criddle. We’re delighted he could join the team.”
