Candidates: Wil Schroder wants to continue to serve in the state Senate

My name is Wil Schroder, and I am the Republican nominee for the State Senate. As a member of the Senate, I have helped pass business-friendly legislation that led to record investments in the state, thousands of new jobs and record low unemployment. I played a key role in crafting bipartisan legislation to address the heroin epidemic and expand treatment options for addicts while appropriately punishing traffickers. In 2018, I helped craft a balanced budget that fully funded the state’s pension plans for the first time in decades and also allocated record per-pupil student funding.
My legislative accomplishments include sponsoring the ABLE Act, which allows families to save for disability-related expenses without fear of losing access to other assistance programs. I also co-sponsored a performance-based funding bill that helps Northern Kentucky University to compete with other universities for the funds allocated to them.

I have always had a passion for public service. Growing up in a household with a father who was a judge for 29 years, and a mother who was a public and private school teacher, I was blessed with parents who believed in giving back to one’s community.

When I was two years old, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I was soon exposed to a world where friends, relatives, and neighbors volunteered time and time again to make dinners, carpool, and watch my sisters and me. This sense of watching out for one’s neighbor had a profound impact on me. Whether it was volunteering in high school as a youth soccer coach, mentoring middle school students in college, or serving as a youth group leader at my church, giving back to my community has been an important part of my life.

Prior to being elected, I served the public as a felony prosecutor in the Campbell County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office. In that role, I was able to represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the people of Campbell County in hundreds of felony cases and worked closely with law enforcement and crime victims.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Marci. We are active members of the Next Chapter Church in Wilder and are the proud parents of our two-year-old daughter, Grace, and recently born son, Trey. My children serve as constant reminders of what is at stake for Kentucky’s future.

It has been my absolute honor and privilege to serve the people of Campbell, Pendleton, and Bracken Counties as a State Senator.

In the last four years, we have passed pro-life legislation, worked to address the heroin epidemic by punishing traffickers and increasing treatment options for users, and set an economic corporate investment record of $9.2 billion dollars. While we have made great progress, there is still more work to be done to make Kentucky a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

I hope to continue to have the great honor of representing the people of the 24th District as we work to address serious issues impacting the Commonwealth and respectfully ask for your vote.

    You also voted twice to harm the teachers of this state by passing its odious Pension reform plan. You voted for a tax package that took money out of my pocket and put it in the pockets of the top 5%of this state’s wage earners. And you think I would ever support you in an election? Surely you’re joking.
