John Yarmuth has dedicated his life to public service to make a difference for others.
Since 2007, John, a Democrat, has been a congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives, serving Kentucky’s 3rd congressional district. He was inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s challenge to young people to get involved in public service. After college, he worked on Capitol Hill on the staff of Republican U.S. Senator Marlow Cook from 1971 to 1975.
John spent time in the publishing industry before life as a congressman. After working for Senator Cook, he returned to Louisville and launched his publishing career by founding the Louisville Today magazine, which operated from 1976 to 1982. In 1990, John founded the Louisville Eccentric Observer (LEO), a weekly newspaper for which he wrote a generally progressive political column. In 2003, he sold LEO but remained a columnist and consultant until January 2006, when he put his column on hiatus to run for Congress.
