Wilson Qualifies for House District 73 in Madison County
Madison attorney Cory Wilson qualified this week to run for Madison County's new House seat, District 73. “As the 2015 Session opens, I am looking ahead to strengthen both Madison’s voice at the Capitol and the conservative House majority in the next legislature,” Wilson said. “I hope to apply my background in both the private sector and public service, and my conservative philosophy, to strengthen our economy, our schools, and Madison County's quality of life.”
Wilson completed his undergraduate studies in business and economics at Ole Miss and law school at Yale University. Wilson’s professional experience spans twenty years of private law practice and service in senior agency positions both in Washington and Mississippi. He also has served in leadership roles in a variety of civic and community organizations centered around the business community and economics education.
Wilson currently serves as Senior Advisor and Counsel to State Treasurer Lynn Fitch, and served from 2008-2011 as Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. From 2005-2006, Wilson served as a White House Fellow in Washington, where he worked at the Pentagon for Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
“It is important to offer conservative ideas for moving Mississippi forward. Madison's new House seat provides an opportunity to build on the progress Republicans have made since taking the gavel four years ago,” Wilson added.
Cory and his wife Stephanie live in the Ashbrooke neighborhood and have one son who attends Madison public schools.
District 73 was shifted to Madison County during redistricting in 2012 to reflect Madison's population growth. The district runs from County Line Road in west Ridgeland to Highway 22 and includes neighborhoods like Dinsmor, Lake Lorman, Cypress Lake, Annandale, Ashbrooke, and Lake Caroline. District 73 also includes parts of Flora and the Deerfield area in Gluckstadt.
