Several Red Bud businesses in running for BND’s Readers’ Choice Awards

Another local newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, is currently asking readers to vote for their favorites in their annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

The paper is asking for people to visit and vote for their “favorite metro-east people, places and businesses.”

Voting will end on Aug. 3 and the winners will be announced in a special section of the paper on Aug. 29.

Like in other contests where readers could submit their favorites for consideration, Red Bud is well represented.
