TERRE HAUTE — John A. Kesler II declared his candidacy Thursday for judge of Vigo Superior Court Division 2. His name will be on the ballot for the May 6 primary.

He was selected by the chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana to serve on the board of directors for the Indiana Federal Community Defenders Program.
