Farmer Rodger L. Reedy announces state rep bid


Rodger L. Reedy, a Republican, has announced his intention to run for Missouri House District 57 in 2018. State Rep. Wanda Brown will be exiting due to term limits.

Reedy, 56, is a lifelong resident of Missouri. He resides in Windsor with his wife of 28 years, Rhonda, who is a first grade teacher. In addition, Rhonda is the co-owner of a gift shop in Clinton’s historic square. Rodger and Rhonda have three grown children: Kayley, Austin and Wesley.

In addition to serving as the Benton County Assessor, Reedy also operates his family farm raising feeder cattle with the help of his children.

Reedy is active in his local community and attends the First Baptist Church of Clinton with his family. He is involved with various organizations, including: Missouri Cattleman’s Association, Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri State Assessors Association and the Missouri Association of Counties.


Reedy would like to focus on job creation and being a voice for Missouri agriculture. Reedy stated, “I am running for State Representative so I can take the knowledge and experience I gained at the county level to Jefferson City. Often times, decisions made on the state level have a major impact on our local communities. If elected, I promise to be pro-agriculture, pro-2nd Amendment rights, pro-life and pro-jobs. I will also work diligently to advocate on behalf of our most vulnerable citizens, including our seniors and children.”

“In the coming months, I look forward to meeting and listening to the people of the 57th District. I would consider it an honor to serve this district.”

Reedy has retained Axiom Strategies to consult on his campaign.
