Rep. Anderson endorsed at convention

On April 4, three-term State Representative Paul Anderson (R-Starbuck) was endorsed for another term in the Minnesota Legislature by Republicans at their District 12B endorsing convention in Sauk Centre.

Anderson, first elected to the House of Representatives in 2008, served as vice-chair of the Agriculture Finance and Policy committee during his second term in office, and he is currently the lead Republican on the Housing Finance and Policy committee.

“It’s been a privilege these past six years to serve the great folks who live in this part of Minnesota,” Anderson said. “Redistricting changed the area I represent last year, but it’s still heavily dependent on agriculture and manufacturing for its economic base. I would like to continue representing District 12B.”

“The state-wide economy seems to be improving,” Anderson added, “although we shouldn’t go on a spending spree in St. Paul just because we have a surplus right now. I’m concerned that the DFL-controlled Legislature is passing financial bills that may cause budget problems in the future.”

Anderson and his wife, Faith, reside on their family farm between Starbuck and Glenwood in Pope County. They have three grown children and three grandchildren.
