After six-decade career, Andy Anderson retires for good
U.S. Representative Rick Larsen joined elected officials, community members and other �fans of Andy� to salute the career of his Bellingham office director and friend, R.H. �Andy� Anderson, last week at Hotel Bellwether in Bellingham.
Anderson, who served three years as Larsen�s office director, has worked in radio, television, journalism, and public service for six decades. Previous to his work for Larsen, Anderson served as former congressman Al Swift�s district manager and was instrumental in creating the PACE (now NEXUS) program for frequent travelers between the U.S. and Canada, benefiting thousands of businesses and individuals, Larsen said.
Anderson was presented with a framed reprint of a speech made by Larsen on January 28, honoring his accomplishments and service to the community. The speech was entered into the congressional record. Anderson said he will enjoy retirement with his wife, travelling abroad, especially in Europe.
Larsen also officially welcomed Ferndale native Jasper MacSlarrow to the Bellingham office where he will serve as Whatcom County district representative. MacSlarrow worked as a legislative aide to Larsen in his D.C. office.
