InfoDennis Moore, a lifelong Kansan, is serving his fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Moore was born in Anthony, Kansas, in 1945. He was educated in Wichita public schools. In 1967, he graduated from the University of Kansas, and received his law degree from Washburn University School of Law in 1970.

After service in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserve, Moore started his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Kansas. He entered private legal practice in Johnson County in 1973.

In 1976, Moore was elected District Attorney in Johnson County and was reelected twice, serving a total of 12 years. During his tenure, Moore earned a reputation as a tough, but fair, prosecutor.

In 1993, Moore was elected to the Johnson County Community College Board of Trustees and was elected to a second term.

Since being elected to Congress in 1998, Moore has served his country and the constituents of the Third District of Kansas.

Moore is a member of the House Committees on the Budget and Financial Services, and is on a leave of absence from the House Small Business Committee during the 110th Congress.

Moore is also a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of moderate to conservative Democrats committed to restoring fiscal responsibility and accountability to government. Moore serves as Co-Chair for Policy, charged with overseeing various task forces to develop the group's policy positions.

Moore resides in Lenexa with his wife Stephene, a registered nurse. They have seven children and seven grandchildren.
