Kenny Anderson Jr. grew up in the north end of Sioux Falls. Kenny attended Hawthorne Elementary, Axtell Park Middle School, and spent one year at Washington High School before serving in the U.S. Marines from 1976 to 1980. Kenny graduated from National American University in 1998 with a degree in PC support and general science.

With a strong interest in local government, Kenny chose to enter public service and ran an unsuccessful campaign for the Sioux Falls City Council in April of 2006. “Sharing my father’s love of the community I felt driven to community service,” he said.

With encouragement from friends and family, Kenny again chose to enter public service by running a successful campaign for the Sioux Falls City Council Northeast District in April of 2008.

Kenny has been active in several community organizations such as: Sioux Falls NAACP, Sioux Falls People for Youth, Sioux Falls Community Foundation Grant Committee, Sioux Falls Tomorrow II, Sioux Falls Schools Diversity Committee, and the Sioux Falls Slow Pitch Softball Association. He is the project and property manager for Phantom Construction in Sioux Falls.
