From the MDJ: Around Town
Another Republican to announce for Golick’s seat was business owner Taryn Bowman, a mother of three and daughter of Nick Chilivis, who was revenue commissioner under Gov. George Busbee in the 1970s.
Bowman, who lives in the Mount Paran Northside neighborhood, said she had just signed a contract on a Smyrna home when Golick announced he would be retiring. Friends contacted her, saying she would be the perfect candidate for that seat.
Bowman attended The Lovett School before earning degrees in business and communications from Southern Methodist University. Her business, Cast My Home, represents homeowners whose houses are used in the film industry. Her husband Pete also works in the film industry. Among the issues she is passionate about are lower taxes, addressing the opioid epidemic, elder abuse, sex trafficking and local control.
