John T. Bird achieved his J.D. from Washburn University of Topeka and has served as both Assistant County Attorney and City Attorney in Ellis, Kansas. Presently, he is a member of the Kansas Supreme Court Child Support Guidelines Committee and serves as City Attorney in Hays. John's current law practice involves the areas of family law, personal injury, medical malpractice, torts, litigation, wills, trusts, labor and employment, among others.

John has always been an active leader and participant in community service, politics and citizen action. He served as Chair of his Ellis County (Kansas) Democratic Party from 1976 to 1994 and as Chair of the Kansas State Democratic Party from 1991 to 1993. John explains,

"I grew up in a family where politics were a part of the everyday discourse. When I got old enough to actively participate in politics, the Democratic Party welcomed me and I decided to stay involved. It is especially gratifying to see high school and college kids coming into the party today. I believe that they, and the Democratic Party, are going to be the salvation of our nation, society and environment."

John has been married to Carolyn Bradford since 1971. John and Carolyn have four grown children, Amy, Jessica, John, Jr., and Patrick, plus three grandchildren.

He also writes at Everyday Citizen. We are simply delighted that John is part of our citizen journalist team here at Kansas Free Press.
