Anderson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "We need to get our lands released from the Federal Government so that our resources can be used for Education and other needs of the economy while at the same time providing a multitude of jobs."
Creating Better Jobs
- Excerpt: "Economic growth does not come from more government spending. Eliminating crippling regulations and taxes that hinder growth would act to stimulate both new and existing businesses."
- Excerpt: "It is not acceptable for me to have my children and grandchildren taught the 'morality' of gay marriage and abortion. Mandating local control of our schools and elimination of the federal dollar 'sinkhole' would solve many of our education problems."
Protecting Public Lands
- Excerpt: "I support the effect to get State control of the public lands that have been illegally held by the federal government since Utah statehood in 1896."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
