Taylor, a former member of the D.C. Democratic Central Committee and a former president of the Greater Washington chapter of Americans for Democratice Action, was named the city's first administrative law judge by Mayor Walter E. Washington in 1976.
On the Superior Court bench, Bowers will replace Judge DeWitt S. Hyde, who retired March 31 after serving in the court for 20 years. Taylor will replace Judge Robert H. Campbell, who resigned last year.
