Writer says Anderson will be a "Statesman"
posted October 24, 2008
As the election for Senate District 25 nears, I am writing to make a
few comments about my brother, Greg Anderson, and his Senate
candidacy. I am the youngest of four sons that were born to
Carmen and Joe Anderson. I grew up in Edgefield, along with my
brothers Joe, Ben and Greg.
After law school, Greg returned to Edgefield to practice law with Joe
and my father in 1980, and he has been there ever since. For
those who do not know Greg, I would like to tell you a few things about
him. First, Greg has always loved his hometown and home
county. That is why he is still there. Greg decided to run
for this office in an effort to further serve this community. The
decision did not come easily, since the electoral process these days
discourages good people from running for public office. But, Greg
decided it was time for him to give back to this area that he so loves.
Greg is fiercely independent in his thinking. Greg and I have had
many conversations over the years concerning the partisanship of both
political parties that has had the effect of harming our country,
state, and community. People can rest assured that, if elected,
Greg will study the issue thoroughly, and will vote to do what he
thinks is right for District 25. It will not matter whether it is
a democratic supported matter or a republican supported matter.
It will not matter if it is the politically correct thing to do.
Greg’s sole basis for making his decision will be whether it is the
right thing to do.
I have thought for many years that we need more Statesmen in our
government. By Statesmen, I mean people who truly just want to
make a difference and to do what they think is right. Statesmen
do not care about power and party and do not care about their future
political career. Statesmen care about getting things done that
need to be done. Greg has nothing to gain or to prove by running
for this office. He simply has decided that it is time to further
serve this community. Greg Anderson will be a statesman.
Knowing my brother as I do, if there is something needed in District 25
and that need is being ignored in the general assembly or by the
governor, I would not be surprised to hear that Greg put whoever was
ignoring the situation in his truck and that he brought them over to
Senate District 25 to see the situation that needed to be addressed and
that he got the problem resolved.
Edgefield County has been good to the entire Anderson family. It
is a place that will always be home to all four Anderson
brothers. I am happy that Greg has remained in Edgefield, and I
am proud that he has offered his candidacy for this office. I
sincerely hope that the people of District 25 will give Greg the
opportunity to serve.
