Seminole County Deputy and military veteran, Chris Anderson, has filed to run for Florida House District 28. He’ll be running to replace incumbent Jason Brodeur, who has reached term limits and will be running for State Senate.
Anderson describes a tough early life, being raised by a single father who abused drugs and would later die of AIDS, before joining the military and serving in Afghanistan. After returning home he began his career in law enforcement and started a family with his wife and three children.
“I attribute the difference to faith, hard work and the belief that we live in a country where anyone can achieve the American Dream if we set our minds to it and never give up.” said Anderson “”I am committed to working hard for the future of all Floridians and their families and tackling the dinner table issues that affect us all – helping families put food on the table, saving money for our children’s education, and keeping our communities safe. By promoting and defending our conservative principles of low taxes, limited government, more freedom and the Constitution – including our Second Amendment rights – we can build a more prosperous Florida for all,”
Anderson’s entrance into the contest creates a Republican primary in the Seminole County seat against another military veteran, retired Marine Colonel David Smith. Lee Vernon Mangold has filed on the Democratic side.
