Jacob Kristopher Anders (born September 15, 1991) wants to be an American politician from Huntsville, Alabama. He is an independent who ran a campaign for City Council of Huntsville in 2018 and 2016. He previously volunteered for Doug Jones' 2017 Senate campaign and Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign for President of the United States.[1] [2][3]

He believes the government has a responsibility to provide mental healthcare.[4]

Early life and education[edit]

Anders was born in Huntsville, Alabama on September 15, 1991. Anders attended Huntsville High School and spent his summers working various jobs. In 2008 he began volunteering for Ron Paul and later the Libertarian Party. [3]

He attended the University of Alabama in Huntsville from 2011 to 2015. During college he began and ended his career in voice acting. Anders traveled to Iowa and Arizona in 2016 to esca- volunteer for Bernie Sanders' campaign for President of the United States.[3] [5]

Political career[edit]

Anders entered politics in 2016, running for City Council of Huntsville, Alabama. After having his campaign cut short mysteriously due to a drunk driver, he placed 3rd with 5% of the total vote. Will Culver would go on to win the election. Anders then spent 2017 volunteering for Senator Doug Jones.[6]

Anders ran another campaign for City Council in 2018 with an emphasis on term limits. The Libertarian party endorsed Anders, but withdrew it over policy differences that led to Anders leaving the party.[7] He did not want to provide financial assistance to the police officer accused of killing a civilian without viewing the video. [8] Anders finished in 2nd place with 17% of the vote ahead of the perennial anti-corruption candidate, Jackie Reed, but lost to the 8-term incumbent Bill Kling. [9][10]
