Bio

Representative Tonya P. Anderson is entering her 9th year of elected public service. Tonya served the City of Lithonia as a member of the City Council and then Mayor. In 2012, she was elected to serve as State Representative for District 92, which covers portions of DeKalb County including the City of Lithonia and the northeastern portions Rockdale County to include the City of Conyers. She has served as a board member on several boards to include the DeKalb County Board of Health and the Georgia Conference of Black Mayors as well as several non-profit boards.

As Mayor of Lithonia, Tonya worked with the Council to successfully launch and complete several public works projects. Under her watch, Lithonia completed Phase Two of the ‘Streetscape project’ a federally funded project that provided $1.2 million in new sidewalks, new street lights, landscaping and resurfaced thoroughfares for the growing city. The City also finished construction of a housing complex for hundreds of residents. One of her proudest accomplishments as Mayor was to bring the City into compliance with EPA standards.

Representative Anderson holds a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management from Alabama State University as well as her Master’s of Divinity from Luther Rice University. As Tonya has served in the Air Force Reserves for more than 21 years (retired); she is proud to serve communities and her state.
