Senate District 27, held a campaign event at the Cherokee Community Center on Tuesday, with many local residents on hand to greet Anderson and his family.

Campaigning for Anderson at the event was U.S. Senator Charles Grassley. Republicans Grassley and Anderson have been acquainted for many years. Anderson has previously worked with the Senator, along with U.S Congressman Steve King at their Sioux City offices.

Anderson has served in the Army National Guard for eight years (2nd 133rd Mechanical and 1st 113th Cavalry) and is a graduate of North High School in Sioux City.

Recently, Anderson accomplished his goal to knock on doors in every community in Senate District 27.

"Not only have I walked in parades, attended county fairs and

community celebrations, but I have also knocked on doors in each of the 19 communities that make up Senate District 27," said Anderson. "I believe you must reach out and meet the voters to learn their concerns, and the best way to do that is show up at their door."

Anderson continued, "There is still much work to do before November 2, and I plan to continue to knock on doors, meet voters, and raise money for my campaign."

Towns in Senate District 27 include: Aurelia, Cherokee, Cleghorn, Larrabee, Marcus, Meriden, Quimby, Washta, Hinton, Kingsley, Oyens, Remsen, Bronson, Correctionville, Lawton, Moville, Pierson, Sergeant Bluff and Sioux City.

Anderson is seeking election to the Iowa Senate in District 27 as a

Republican. The General Election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
