Early life

Career

Prior to entering politics he was a teacher, principal of the Western Australian College of Agriculture in Denmark and businessman. [2] He is married to Marie Redman and they have two children: Ben and Alysha.

Winning preselection for the National Party after the retirement of the sitting member Monty House, Redman retained the seat of Stirling for his party at the 2005 state election. [3] Following Stirling's abolition, he won the new seat of Blackwood-Stirling at the 2008 state election.

The Western Australian election, held on 6 September 2008, resulted in a hung parliament after a swing away from the incumbent Labor Party.

On 14 September 2008, the National Party, for which Redman had been re-elected as an MP, agreed to support the Liberal Party as a minority government. Redman along with two other Nationals, including leader Brendon Grylls and deputy leader Terry Waldron, were appointed to Cabinet on 23 September 2008.

Redman served as Minister for Agriculture and Food; Forestry; and Minister Assisting the Minister for Education from 23 September 2008 to 14 December 2010. He then served as Minister for Agriculture and Food; Forestry; and Minister for Corrective Services until 29 June 2012, when he became the Minister for Housing. [4]

At the 2013 state election, Redman won the realigned and renamed seat of Warren-Blackwood. He became Leader of the WA Nationals in December 2013. Redman was also appointed Minister of Regional Development and Lands, taking on the responsibility of overseeing the Royalties for Regions program. He resigned from the leadership in August 2016 and was replaced by his predecessor, Brendon Grylls. [5] Redman became the first WA Nationals leader not to lead his party to an election since Henry Maley, who served in 1922–23, when the party was known as the Country Party.
