Cold Spring council member Paul Kloeker has filed to represent District 68 in the Kentucky General Assembly. The seat has been held by Joe Fisher (R) who announced recently that he will not seek re-election when his term ends (January 1, 2023).

Kloeker, who is in his second term after three years on the Cold Spring council, said he had started to consider running last year but made the final decision after he learned that Fisher would not be seeking re-election. 

Fischer announced earlier this month that he filed to run for the Kentucky Supreme Court seat, currently held by Judge Michelle Keller.

 "Our district needs a voice in Frankfort in the often overlooked Northern Kentucky region," he said.

Bringing economic vitality to the region is key, he said, noting the progress the council has made in Cold Spring. "In the last three years, economic development in the city has been booming while most of the county has remained stagnant. Several businesses have recently opened their doors in Cold Spring which supports the city’s revenue stream as well as provides much needed services for our residents." 

14 N. Grand Ave. 

On the issues, he said, "I hope to be a voice for our region in Frankfort, as well as continue to protect our second amendment, the rights of the unborn and work to keep tax rates low. I want to improve infrastructure — one of the hottest topics is always traffic. We need to think 10, 20 and 50 years into the future to alleviate traffic through the addition of bypasses and widening of current state highways. This can’t be done without help from the state."

Kloeker was born and raised in Cold Spring. He attended Campbell County High School and graduated from Gateway Community College in Highland Heights with an associate degree in general occupational technical studies. He is a maintenance manager for a large auto parts distribution center in Walton. Kloeker lives in Cold Spring with his wife, Mallory, and his two children.
