Josh Blair Nominated To Run As Democratic Candidate In HD-63 Special Election

The Democratic Party of Boone and Kenton Counties chose Josh Blair, of Erlanger, as their nominee for House District 63 in a special election to take place on Tuesday, November 5, in conjunction with the General Election.

“Josh Blair is a true representative of everyday Kentuckians and his district,” said Mary Nishimuta, Executive Director of the Kentucky Democratic Party. “Blair has lived most of his life in Kenton County and understands that supporting education, implementing a fair tax structure, transparency in government and strengthening small businesses are pivotal in addressing the needs of the community. We are excited to support him in defeating the Republican candidate this November.”

Blair, a graduate of Beechwood High School and Northern Kentucky University, has lived most of his life in Kenton County.  After graduating from NKU in 2005, Blair attended graduate school at Ohio University and worked at Syracuse University in the Public Safety Department, before returning to Northern Kentucky to raise his family.

Former State Rep. Diane St. Onge, a Republican, resigned her seat to relocate to California.

Blair is an adjunct professor at NKU, and was recently selected as a Parent Representative on the Caywood Elementary Site Based Decision Making Council. He believes investing in education is investing in job growth and our future.
