Voting is one of the most important rights we have as citizens. Many of us consistently cast our vote in the presidential election every four years, but sometimes disregard the mid-term and local elections.

Decisions made at the local level impact our daily lives, so it is vital to choose someone trustworthy who will represent local issues in a non-partisan way. For us, that person is Josh Anderson, running for County Commission in District 3 (Norris, Andersonville, Fairview, and Glen Alpine precincts).

We have had the privilege of knowing Josh Anderson for the past few years, ever since he first auditioned for Norris Little Theatre. Our first impression was positive, and one that has not changed over time. Josh is a personable, communicative, and intelligent young man.

He cares about family and has deep roots in Anderson County. He is deeply committed to our community, and we know from personal experience, that he will work tirelessly to live up to his promises.

As part of his goal to improve the quality of life in Anderson County, Josh wants to be part of a team to help people caught up in the opioid crisis, and to serve as a liaison for anyone needing a second chance due to a troubled past. He has many viable ideas for raising revenues without resorting to property tax increases.

Josh is supportive of local initiatives for seniors and wants to solve the senior center issue. He plans to have regular town hall type gatherings at local businesses because he wants to explain and keep us updated on issues impacting Anderson County. Prior to casting his vote on each issue, Josh intends to take a poll so he can stay connected to what the people in District 3 want.

Without hesitation, we assure you that Josh Anderson is a man of his word who will represent us well and make us proud. Please vote on August 2. Your voice matters.
