He does have one tiny redeeming feature; he supports bicycle projects. (How's that for damming with faint praise!)
Does anyone remember if he had opposition in his last election or, if so, who it was?
He wouldnt be there if it werent for Suzanne Jenkins and George Banks not being able to come to an accomodation.
The office of district 4 is run by his very capable council assistant, Scott. Without him, Redman's basic illiteracy and unfamiliarity with the democratic process would have collapsed about 6 months into his term.
Anyone who deals with that office is aware that Scott actually fills the seat, and as long as there is a competent person there to get things done, there hasnt been any event to cause enough constituents to revolt against him.
Most people assume that Scott will actually be running to fill Redman's seat when he term limits, and there was a lot of (apparently unfounded) speculation that he would run against Redman in the last election.
And since I think he is reading this thread, I just wanted to point out that I think this event may be the opening gambit of an effort to get rid of Redman, and assisting the minor league haircutting villain is a good way to get tarred with the same brush.
None of us know his politics, most people associated with the council have the opinion of him as being competent enough to actually run a council district without credit or the corresponding pay, and probably a good person to take the reins in his own name. But this kind of shenanigan on Redman's part is enough to sink both men.
