5th District's Glenn Anderson To Hang It Up
The Sammamish Review reports that Glenn Anderson will be leaving the Washington State Legislature where he represented the 5th in the House Of Representatives. Anderson has represented the district since 2000. He ranked 13th in seniority in seniority. Anderson's representation, although very unpopular with progressive leaning constituents, has rarely been challenged in the mostly conservative, primarily rural district representing South Eastern King County. He did face a tough race in 2008, a Democratic year across the nation, to then upstart David Spring. A rematch between Anderson and Spring, 2 years later, proved to be a landslide victory for Anderson.
