Jason Kilmer Files for 68th District House Seat Against Joe Fischer

Fort Thomas man seeks to unseat incumbent in District 68

Jason Kilmer of Fort Thomas, filed to run as the Democratic challenger to incumbent Rep. Joe Fischer, R - Fort Thomas.  Fischer has been a State Representative for almost 20 years, drawing an opponent in only two elections in the heavily conservative 68th district.

In a release, Kilmer said that he believes Fischer has had long enough to try and improve Central and Southern Campbell County.

“Mr. Fischer has served for almost two decades and I and others believe it is time for a change," he said.

"I will be improving our school districts, not trying to undermine them.  Campbell County Schools, Fort Thomas Independent Schools and our beloved Catholic school systems are some of the best in the state.  There is no reason to hinder their progress and growth." 

Kilmer said that he will try to work with local heroin and opioid advocacy groups to find a real solution to the problem.

"I don't want to just pay them lip service," he said.

In a release, Kilmer went on to say that he believes the tax code is broken.

"It gives more breaks to those that don’t need them while pushing the tax burden onto the backs of working families.  We need to lighten the load on our small businesses, so they can grow and expand because that’s where real economic growth comes from.”

Kilmer, who grew up in Alexandria, is a mechanical drafter for Ethicon. He said he is ready to bring a youthful excitement to Frankfort.

“I’m not a career politician like Joe Fischer, however, I have a great group of people surrounding me; the support of my family and wonderful wife Amanda and I am ready for the challenge and ready to lead the fight for the working families, just like mine, in our great district.  What will differentiate me from Joe is that I will be available.  I will be there at all times for you, not just during election time.  

I feel that the complaints of the district fall on deaf ears, that will stop with me.”

Kilmer lives in Fort Thomas, in the Woodfill District, with his wife, Amanda, and two young daughters, Fiona (4) and Gwyneth (2).
