  • BACK FOR MORE: The legislature's changed significantly in the years since Bond left the General Assembly.

Will Bond
, a former chairman of the Democratic Party of Arkansas, announced this morning that he'll be running for the state senate seat to be vacated by Sen. David Johnson (D-Little Rock) at the end of his term.

Bond is an attorney with McMath Woods P.A. and previously served a stint in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2003 to 2008.

Here's his website. And here's the announcement:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Will Bond announced Wednesday that he will run for State Senate District 32. Bond lives in Little Rock with his wife, Gabriel, and three children, son Cy (14) and twin daughters Marlee and Elliott (9). Bond has been a partner in the Little Rock law firm McMath Woods P.A. since 2006. Bond previously served three terms in the House from 2003 through 2008 representing District 44 (Jacksonville). Bond was asked to serve as Chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party by Governor Beebe, and was elected and served in that volunteer position from 2011 through July of 2013. Bond’s campaign will focus on policies that allow all Arkansans the opportunity to succeed.

“One word defines my outlook on public service and policy—together,” Bond said. “We are all in this together. Our policies must focus on what is in the best interest of Arkansas, not what is best for special interests. I will work to expand Pre-K and improve our public schools, protect and improve Arkansas’s private option, conserve our natural resources and fight for equal rights for all, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.”

Bond is the son of former State Representative Pat Bond and Tommy Bond. He has two sisters, Melissa Bond and Kelly Bond Emerson.
