Sen. Wil Schroder Files for Re-election in Kentucky State Senate


Senator Wil Schroder filed for reelection to the 24th District of the Kentucky State Senate representing Campbell, Pendleton, and Bracken Counties. Wil was first elected to this seat in 2014.

Schroder will face Rachel Roberts, a Democrat from Newport, in the general election in November. Roberts owns The Yoga Bar in Newport and Over-the-Rhine.

“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 much work left to be done. 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.”

Further legislative accomplishments by Wil include sponsoring the ABLE Act, which allows families to save for disability-related expenses without fear of losing access to other assistance programs.  He also co-sponsored a performance-based funding bill that allows Northern Kentucky University to compete with other universities for the funds allocated to them.

Senator Schroder was recently named a Champion for Justice by the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Program.  This award recognized his sponsorship of SB 224, which allows victims of sexual assault more time to bring civil actions against their perpetrators.  

Wil resides in Wilder and is a lifelong Northern Kentucky resident. He is the son of the late Justice Wil Schroder and Nancy Schroder, both victims of cancer. Wil is married to his high school sweetheart, Marci. The two are active members of the Next Chapter Church in Wilder where they served in various leadership capacities and where Wil often plays guitar in the worship band.  Wil and Marci are the proud parents of their daughter Grace who is nineteen months old.
