Welcome From Anderson Commission Chair

Welcome to Anderson County! We have a proud past of trail-blazing in areas of both scientific and social advancement, from being the location of the first Hydroelectric Dam constructed by TVA, and bringing the world into the nuclear age with our participation in the Manhattan Project, to having the first integrated public school in the south. We strive to continue that tradition with our excellent schools, our close partnerships with TVA and the Department of Energy, and our commitment to being a great place to live and work. We’re also a great place to just come for a visit with the stunning natural beauty surrounding Norris Lake and the Clinch River, to our several museums showcasing the county’s rich history. Our nearly 80,000 residents are proudly represented by 16 commissioners, 2 from each of the 8 commission districts which comprise the county, who are elected every 4 years. We are all just a phone call or email away, and are eager to serve you.

Sincerely, Joshua Anderson, Chairman
