Former Madisonville Mayor Files for State Senate Seat

cox candidateHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (1/22/14) ― Hopkins County native and former Madisonville Mayor William “Will” Cox, Jr. filed his candidacy papers today at the state Capitol in Frankfort for the sixth-district of the Kentucky State Senate.

The 6th District is comprised of Butler, Hopkins, Muhlenberg and Ohio counties and is currently  represented by Sen. Jerry Rhoads, who recently announced his retirement at the end of the current term. The election will take place on Nov. 4.

“I want to bring the same energy, enthusiasm, and tenacity that served me well as Mayor of  Madisonville to the entire sixth senatorial district,” said Cox. “I will fight for every citizen in each of the four counties of the 6th District in Frankfort. I will support ideas and policies that will keep jobs here at home and bring more  good-paying jobs to the district; I will fight to improve educational resources and opportunities  for all; I will work with law enforcement and citizen groups to keep us safe in our homes and  workplaces; I will ensure that state government spends our tax dollars in the most efficient and  cost-effective manner possible; and I will support our coal miners and their families by being a  staunch advocate for the coal industry. These are my priorities.

“I want the citizens of the 6th District to know that they will be represented by someone who will listen when to their ideas and work tirelessly to help them accomplish their goals, whatever they may be," said Cox.

Prior to founding his own law firm in 2012, Cox served in government relations and external affairs for a leading national cable television operator. His public service record also includes two two-year terms on the Madisonville City Council.

Cox practiced law across western Kentucky with the firm of Whitfield & Cox, PSC (formerly  Whitfield & Calvert, PSC). He received his JD from the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the  University of Louisville and his BS from the University of Kentucky. His volunteer and leadership  work includes Leadership Kentucky, the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence Board of  Directors, Friends of Kentucky Educational Television Board of Directors and past president and Madisonville Noon Kiwanis Club Board of Directors.

Cox lives in Madisonville with his wife, Marci.
