Phil Anderson

for Burleson City Council, Place 2

Phil Anderson grew up in Burton, Kansas before relocating to Burleson, Texas in 1983. Having already spent 11 years teaching High School Social Studies in Kansas, after getting settled here he stepped right into a teaching role at Burleson High School where he continued to teach Social Studies for another 38 years. During his nearly 40-year tenure at BHS, Phil Anderson also spent 20 years coaching both baseball and basketball, served as the BISD Assistant Athletic Director for 5 years, and was even asked by the new superintendent to serve as the Athletic Director, a role which he held for 10 years. Phil Anderson earned the distinction of “Teacher of the Year” by the Ft. Worth Star Telegram for the 2003-2004 school year, was named a Burleson Opportunity Fund Honoree in 2016, started the Burleson Sports Hall of Fame in 2011, a position which is still ongoing, and even earned the distinct honor of being named Burleson Citizen of the Year in 2019. Although he finally retired from the school system in 2019, Phil Anderson is ready to continue to serve the citizens of Burleson the best way he knows how. He is running for Place 2 on the ballot, and if elected aims to serve by focusing on safety, actively taking care of the citizens, continuing the friendly tradition of our community to encourage more growth, ensuring equal opportunity and carrying on the rich traditions of the Burleson community. Phil’s wife Teresa and their sons Rhyan and Corey Anderson are ready to stand beside him as he aims to continue his legacy of service to this community as Council Place 2.

“The City of Burleson and its residents have given me and my family a wonderful life over the last 40 years. It is my desire to give back to this community as a public servant. I have no overreaching agenda other than to meet the needs of our community to the absolute best of my ability.”
