Third Candidate Files for DeCesare's Legislative Seat

Mike Wilson

Another candidate has joined the race for State Representative Jim DeCesare’s seat in the Kentucky House of Representatives. 

Mike Wilson of Bowling Green has filed to run for the 17th District seat that represents Butler and part of Warren County.  The seat opened up after DeCesare announced he wouldn’t seek re-election this year. 

Wilson is a Republican and works as Director of Facilities for Warren County Public Schools.

He faces two other GOP candidates, Joey Franzell of Morgantown and David Graham of Rockfield.

Candidates have until January 30 to file paperwork with the Kentucky Secretary of State's Office.
