Redmon Announces Candidacy for State Representative
Craig Redmon of Canton has filed documents with the Missouri Ethics Commission with the intent of running for the state representative in the First District of Missouri. Redmon is a small business owner in Monticello. He held a press conference at the C & B convenience store in Canton on December 23rd to kick off his campaign.
