Renee Hoagenson employed an unusual approach to announce her candidacy for Congress. Her announcement did not reveal who she was, but it worked for her. Over 175 persons motivated to unseat Vicky Hartzler turned out to meet a person who was ready to step forward to take her on. As many of us, Renee Hoagenson is appalled by the threat Donald Trump poses to the American way of life, and she wants to do something about it. She believes serving in Congress will give her an opportunity to make a difference in this existential struggle for the future of our nation. She believes Vicky Hartzler is vulnerable, and she intends to win.
Renee Hoagenson is a small business woman, a mother of three, and a strong, independent person. As a single mom, she has learned to balance care for her children with her need to make a living for her family. Much of her work over the last twenty years has involved advertising. She started two magazines in mid Missouri, The Columbia Market Place and the Jefferson City Market Place. After selling these two publications, she initiated the Sedalia Show Place Magazine. She has also worked for the Columbia Tribune and sold advertising for a radio station. She believes these business experiences will be of great help to her in her run for Congress.
