Open Seat Alert: Sen. Wil Schroder Not Seeking Reelection

In a tweet sent Wednesday night, state Sen. Will Schroder, R-Wilder, informed his constituents he would not seek a third term in the Kentucky General Assembly.

The Northern Kentucky Republican has served in the Senate since 2015 aiming to make Kentucky a better place, and now, he says, he’s fulfilled that goal.

“While I am not seeking re-election, I am committed as ever to finishing my current term in the General Assembly and providing the best service to my constituents,” Schroder said in a statement. “As Chair of the Senate’s Economic Development Committee, I look forward to improving Kentucky’s business and workforce environment, especially in light of the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In 2023, once out of the Senate, Schroder said he looks forward to continued engagement on the issues he feels passionate about and spending more time with his family.

The news creates an opening for the Bracken, Campbell, and Pendleton County seat. However, the district could shift under new legislative district maps which could be revealed later this year.
