SPOTSYLVANIACOUNTY, VA – Today, Derrick Anderson, candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 7th District, received the endorsement of Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisor Jacob Lane.
“As someone who has known Derrick since middle school, I can without a doubt say that he will represent the people of the 7th District with honor and dignity. Derrick left the area to serve our country, fighting in some of the most dangerous areas of the world for ten years. Now he wants to serve the people who raised him in Congress, because he is a man of integrity and service, and that’s exactly what we need in Congress right now. I’m honored to endorse him,” said Supervisor Jacob Lane.
“I’m honored to receive Supervisor Lane’s endorsement. Jake and I have known each other since we were kids, and I look forward to seeing him continue to represent the people that helped raise us here in Spotsylvania. His impressive Special Election win in February shows that the community is ready for a new generation of leaders at all levels of government,” said Anderson.
