Bond busy in ‘retirement’ from U.S. Senate
Sunday, July 17, 2011
In the six months since he retired from the U.S. Senate, former Missouri Gov. and U.S. Sen. Christopher “Kit” Bond said, he hasn’t had much time to relax.
“I’m so much busier than I would be in the Senate,” he said last week, during an interview about Congress considering a bill to name Jefferson City’s new federal courthouse for the veteran politician.
Bond maintains a home in the D.C. area and is a partner in the Thompson Coburn law firm’s Public Finance and Public Law practice group.
He’s just returned from a two-week trip to Europe on behalf of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Foundation, arranged by his wife, Linda.
