Calen Studler, a Frankfort real estate appraiser and realtor, announced his candidacy for Kentucky’s 7th Senate District, which includes Woodford County.
Calen Studler is a conservative who believes the 7th Senate district has been left behind by those who only seek solutions within their party’s agenda. Calen took the work path in life; managing a restaurant until being hired at the Toyota plant in Georgetown, Kentucky. While employed at TMMK, he took the necessary classes to obtain his real estate license and certified residential appraiser license. This life experience means Calen understands firsthand the needs of working families across the 7th Senate District, and across Kentucky.
