MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) — The day he's sworn in to the Mississippi House, Jeramey Anderson will turn 22.
He'll be Mississippi's youngest state representative. He defeated former Moss Point Mayor Aneice Liddell with 60 percent of the vote Tuesday to win the District 110 seat vacated by Billy Broomfield.
He tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1inKHgc ) his constituents are his main concern, and his votes will be guided by what they want.
He also has to balance his final year at Tulane University with his position in the state House.
Anderson said his dean is very supportive and the university plans to work with him online from January to August, while the Legislature is in session.
He says he'll manage both education and legislation, but the people in his district come first.
