John L. Day, circa 1954
Dad's long career included some youthful union activism (He helped lead a successful job action that aided his fellow workers and got himself fired in the process), real estate sales, President of the Kenton-Boone Board of Realtors, and a long career in real estate appraisal that found him working for both public agencies (like the Kentucky Highway Department, Greater Cincinnati Airport, East Kentucky Power) and individual home owners. He received a Kentucky Realtor's Emeritus recognition not too long ago for his 50+ years of service to the field. He and my mother reared three children including my brother Jack a Cincinnati attorney, and my sister Kim who has been a Vice President of Marketing for several fashion houses in New York. Mom & Dad presently reside in Crestview Hills, Ky
My father was a rather independent Democrat when he served in the Kentucky House of Representatives for two terms in the mid-1950s - contemporaneously with Foster Ockerman Sr., Edward T "Ned" Brethitt, Harry King Lowman, & John B Breckinridge.
