Republican Candidate for State Treasurer

Taylor Royal


I am a Christian; married to my wife, Katie, who is a 2nd grade teacher in Elkhorn and we live in Omaha; I am a CPA and financial representative; a fiscal conservative; supporter of President Trump’s growth agenda; 100% prolife; believe in strong families; pro 2nd Amendment; that protecting our borders through a physical barrier (where reasonable) and promoting legal immigration is vital to our country’s future; and believe that Nebraskans work hard for their money and that, as taxpayers, they should get a good return from the money they send to Washington D.C. or Lincoln, Nebraska.


Steward Taxpayer Resources:  Nebraska taxpayer funds will be properly accounted for, effectively invested, and completely protected.  State spending will be transparent, searchable, and accessible online via an open checkbook;

I will work with the Nebraska Investment Council to make Nebraska’s 529 college-savings plans one of the country’s best tax-advantaged 529 plans.  529 Plans should be available for private and parochial education expenses;

Youth Financial Literacy Initiative:  I will travel our State to educate and teach sound financial principles, like budgeting, saving & investing, education & retirement planning to our high school students; and

Taxpayer Advocacy:  I will advocate for the Nebraska taxpayer and promote the Nebraska values of Stewardship, Protection for the unborn, Smaller government, Lower Income taxes and property taxes, and Strong families
