Louisiana's 3rd District
Rob Anderson was born in 1968 on a Naval base in California. His career-military father moved his young family around the country until 1974 when they finally settled in Florida. It was here that Rob’s heart became tied to the deep south. Rob followed work all across the country, working in a variety of fields from IT, construction, homebuilding and printing to geotechnical drilling. After leaving the drilling field Rob settled in Louisiana with his wife, Clarissa. Rob and Clarissa have two adult children, Madeline and Elias. Madeline works for a shelter that serves survivors of domestic violence and Elias recently graduated with his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Saint Vincent College.
Rob and Clarissa reside in the town of Dequincy, in Louisiana’s 3rd Congressional district, which encompasses southwest Louisiana from the Texas state line to the Atchafalaya River. Rob’s lifelong experience in the working-class makes him uniquely suited to represent this similarly working-class district. Rob is running to be a voice for the people of his district, many of whom are suffering as a result of a stagnant petrochemical industry, underinvestment in education, and insufficient infrastructure. In Congress, Rob will prioritize expanding healthcare access and affordability, ensuring fair wages for all workers, investing in a real 21st-century infrastructure program and protecting Louisiana’s fragile coastline.
