MOSS POINT, Miss.–Filling the shoes of Billy Broomfield in the Mississippi House is now up to 21-year-old Jeramy Anderson, who was overwhelmingly elected as the new representative for District 110 Tuesday, beating former Moss Point mayor Aneice Liddell. Anderson will be the youngest person ever to serve in the House.
It’s not clear how it will affect his academic career. Anderson is a student at Tulane.
The vote count was Anderson with 1,455 votes to Liddell’s 948. There were still 100 or so affidavit votes to count, not enough to affect the outcome.
Anderson told WLOX that it was his social media push that he believes got him elected.
He said he plans to focus on doing what he can to make sure residents in the district aren’t “priced out of flood insurance”.
This is from Anderson’s Facebook page:
WOW!!! So much I cant take it all in right now. I’ll do better tomorrow. Let me just say this – GOD DONT LIKE UGLY! There is no amount of shiggidy, slickness, trickery, foolery, forgery or just plain ole dirtiness you can do when GOD has a plan.
