Charles "Doc" Anderson

A graduate of the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine, Charles "Doc" Anderson began his involvement in the political process as an advocate for small business. He served on committees for the Texas Association of Business and the National Federation of Independent Businesses and was appointed to the Texas Small Business Advisory Council by Governor Perry.  Dr. Anderson was first elected to represent District 56 (Waco and 3/4ths of McLennan County) in 2004 and is currently serving in his third term.

Representative Anderson has introduced major legislation concerning school bus safety belts, Jessica's Law, and a constitutional amendment to require a two-thirds vote of the legislature in order to raise the 1% business franchise tax. In his first term, he successfully obtained partial funding for the construction of the new Company F Headquarters for the Texas Rangers, which will also house a public education center on the Rangers. Waco officials and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame & Museum had been seeking state aid for this project for nearly ten years.  Dr. Anderson has been married to his wife Sandie for over 27 years and together they have one son and one grandson.  Dr. Anderson raises cattle at his ranch in McLennan County.
