Cindy Redburn - State Representative District #96

Cindy Redburn - 2007Cindy was born and raised in south St. Louis and has lived in Missouri most of her life. She’s a retired member of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and recently retired from Providence Christian Classical Academy, where she served as the fourth grade teacher.

Her love of liberty and teaching led her to develop an eight week course, “Restoring the Foundations”, which she has taught since 2009 as well as leading a monthly book discussion group, First Fridays.

Cindy became politically active in 1992 as a charter member of the Constitution Party of Missouri and has served as their party chair and secretary, and currently serves as secretary for the Constitution Party National Committee.

Married to Alan for 36 years, they have six children and 10 grandchildren. It’s for the love of those grandchildren and the concern over the legacy that they’ll inherit that’s moved Cindy to declare her candidacy on the Constitution Party ticket:

“For the first time in the history of our nation, our children do not live in a better world than we did, and the future of our grandchildren is even dimmer. The America that was once respected and honored among the nations of the world as a place where people could be free and live in safety as the pursued their dreams is vanishing.

There is a better way to govern, and as citizens of the “Show Me State”, Missourians can lead the way in restoring the American dream. I am committed to a better way for a better Missouri.

Richard McKie - County Legislator, Jackson County

Posted by on Apr 1, 2014 in 2014 Candidates | 0 comments


Richard3I am running for Jackson County Missouri Legislator-3rd District. I am 63 years old-a retired letter carrier. I am married for 32 years to my wonderful wife. I have 4 grown sons and 13 grandchildren. I volunteer at my church in the food pantry and with “After the Harvest” I believe in my Lord Jesus and the Constitution. We need limited government. We need informed citizens. Corporations should pay their fair share of taxes. I will not take contributions from anyone with strings attached. I would look carefully at any new bills that affect individual taxpayers money. Our country and taxpayers cannot fund everything and everybody. The 2 major parties and those who run for them do not have the average voters interest at heart. People should have a choice when they vote. I would consider each bill individually. I would be open to hear concerns of all people in the district. I stand for the Constitution Party’s Platform. Thanks for your consideration.
