Anderson Enters Race Following Minnesota Supreme Court Decision

to Remove Representative Bob Barrett from Ballot

WYOMING, Minn. – Sept. 13, 2016 – Following the recent announcement from the Minnesota Supreme Court that ruled that Representative Bob Barrett is ineligible to run in House District 31B, former three term Wyoming Mayor Sheldon Anderson announced his candidacy for the Feb. 14, 2017, special election.

“After the many telephone calls, emails and text messages from friends and local Republican activists encouraging me to seek the endorsement for my good friend Bob Barrett’s seat, I have done so today,” said Anderson. “As a dedicated public servant, I’m looking forward to going to Saint Paul to fight for the hard working families of Chisago County.”

As a small business owner for 25 years and public servant, Anderson is uniquely qualified to serve the constituents of Chisago County. Anderson is seeking the Republican party endorsement in House District 32B.

“I bring the experience of working hard for the people I have represented in the past as three-term mayor of the city of Wyoming and as district director and senior advisor to former Congressman Chip Cravaack,“ said Anderson. “I look forward to working to bringing local, common sense reforms from my time as mayor to Saint Paul.”
