Kevin Anderson came to Tamworth at the age of 30, as a journalist with Prime Television.
In 1996 he married Anna Davidson from Quirindi and together they have three children, Will (12), Ella (9) and Sam (5). They have made their home in Tamworth.
Kevin spent 11 years as a journalist and news anchor, talking to families in our region about the issues that mattered to them. In 2004 he left Prime Television to work with Hunter New England Area Health Service as a communications and business development manager.
Since 2007 he has operated Centreboard Media, an advertising and marketing agency.
Kevin's continued interest in community issues and the challenges facing many organisations from a lack of government support led him to stand as a candidate for The Nationals at the 2007 State Election. Since then Kevin has remained committed to the community and become more determined to make sure that we have a real say in the decisions that affect us.
In June 2010 Kevin ran in the first ever community preselection and was endorsed by a majority of the more than 4000 people who took part in the vote.
Kevin has always tried to give back to the community, taking on volunteer work for local charities including the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the Salvation Army. In 2008 he was part of the committee that built the Tamworth Ronald McDonald House in two-and-a-half days.
Kevin was humbled by the strong support he received at the 2007 election and at the community preselection, and he is more determined than ever to give Tamworth a strong voice in government.
