Kilmer will correct state’s direction
Jason Kilmer doesn’t like the direction the “new majority,” and Gov. Bevin has taken Kentucky.
Kilmer is running for the state’s 68th House District representing part of Campbell County.
As a mechanical engineering drafter and designer, Kilmer lives with his wife, Amanda, and their two children in northern Kentucky.
He has a degree in mechanical engineering technology from Gateway KCTCS and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in political science from Eastern Kentucky University.
“I am running for this office because I do not like the direction the “new majority” and the governor are taking this state,” Kilmer said. “With attacks on education and those who are not wealthy, this is quickly becoming a state and state government for the few and elite by the few and elite.”
Coming from a divorced family, Kilmer has seen the highs and lows of family life and what it takes to get by. Both of his parents, Beth and Pat, are his heroes. They taught him the meaning of sacrifice.
Now that he has a family of his own, he understands the challenges of a working family.
“Those living paycheck to paycheck are not seeing any relief,” Kilmer said. “Our schools and teachers are under attack and our children are being sold to the highest bidders.”
Kilmer has always felt a calling to represent the people in his district.
“I have a lot of respect for the people and community of District 68,” Kilmer said.
“I appreciate the diversity of people extending from the suburbs of Fort Thomas, Highland Heights, Cold Spring, and Alexandria to the rural communities of Grants Licks, Camp Springs, California, and Mentor.”
Kilmer will be available for those in his district at all times — not just during election time.
“I am running because the incumbent has only been challenged one other time in 19 years. I am running because of the lack of progress in the 68th district,” Kilmer said. “I am running because we have two of the best public school districts in the state in House District 68 (Fort Thomas Ind. and Campbell Co. Schools). I am running because I can empathize with people and be open-minded to changes and new possibilities.”
