Theresa Taylor
Vice President / Secretary-Treasurer


Principal Compliance Representative
Franchise Tax Board

Long-time Local 1000 and community activist Theresa Taylor was elected as Vice President / Secretary-Treasurer in 2015. She has served as President of District Labor Council (DLC) 786, on Local 1000’s Executive Board and on our Budget Committee. She has also served on the Real Time Strategic Change Design Team and the Retirement Security Team.

Taylor, a principal compliance representative at the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) in Sacramento, has worked for the state for over 20 years and brings a wealth of financial experience to her new role. Her FTB work involved combing through thousands of financial statements and balance sheets to analyze complex corporate financial transactions, a skill and dedication she applies to managing Local 1000’s books.

In 2014, Taylor was elected to the CalPERS Board of Administration, a position she has used to advocate for secure retirement as a basic right for all Californians. “I have fought shoulder to shoulder with my fellow Local 1000 members to protect our retirement security,” Taylor says, “and I know our work won’t be done until all Californians have access to a secure retirement after a lifetime of work.”

Ms. Taylor earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies from the University of Hawaii, Manoa Campus. She and her husband live in Elk Grove, California, and they have two adult children.
