State Rep. Jeramey Anderson Hopes to Continue his Work for Mississippi

State Representative Jeramey Anderson is gearing up for the August 4th primary elections against former State Representative Mitch Ellerby.
With only 33 days remaining before the election, Anderson says he’ll need help from his supporter to keep his seat.
Jeramey Anderson tells News 25 he still has unfinished business in Jackson as a state representative, but needs contributions to continue his work. “Right now, as we speak with the election, it takes money to win. It really does, and we have about $71 on hand and I don’t really know what I can do with $71,” Anderson said.
Anderson’s position opened when then Representative Billy Broomfield was elected mayor of Moss Point. He won that election to serve out the last two years of Broomfield’s term, and also made history by becoming the youngest African American elected to a State Legislature in United States history.
Anderson said, “We’ve been trying to do things that will have a direct impact on our community. So winning and running for re-election was a no-brainer for me.”
Anderson says he’s worked on more than 10 House Bill amendments and has returned $75,000 in unclaimed property to small business owners.
“Plans going forward, of course, continue to push for education. We still have major needs for the fully funding of education in Mississippi, but not only fully funding, but making sure that we integrate technology into our classrooms to make sure that we have 21st century classrooms,” said Anderson. “I still have a commitment to serve my constituents and they still have problems that they need help with every single day. But at the same time, if I’m not re-elected then I’m not in a good position to help with those problems.”
Anderson, a democrat, will be squaring off against former State Representative Mitch Ellerby in the August 4th election.
