Anderson Drew Ferguson IV[1] (born November 15, 1966) is an American dentist and politician who is the U.S. Representative for Georgia's 3rd congressional district. The district stretches from the southern suburbs of Atlanta to the northern suburbs of Columbus.

A Republican, he previously served as the mayor of West Point, Georgia, a city located between LaGrange and Columbus.

Ferguson was born in Langdale, Alabama in 1966[2] and graduated from the University of Georgia, and the Medical College of Georgia.[3] He served as an alderman for West Point, and then as mayor of West Point from 2008 through 2016, when he resigned to focus on his race for the House of Representatives.

In a contentious battle, Ferguson found his way into the Republican primary runoff against State Senator Mike Crane. On July 26, 2016, Ferguson soundly defeated Crane with 54% of the vote.[4] He defeated Democratic Party nominee Angela Pendley in the November 2016 general election.[5]

National Defense

Congressman Ferguson believes that providing for our national defense is the most important job entrusted to the Federal Government. He has voted to ensure the military receives critical funding and give our troops their largest pay raise in eight years.[10]

Border Security

Congressman Ferguson believes that protecting the homeland starts with securing borders. In the 115th Congress, he introduced H.R. 6415[11], the American Border Act, which would authorize construction and ensure the necessary funding to build a wall along the southern border. He has also voted to fulfill President Trump’s full funding request for construction of a southern border wall.[12]

On February 6, 2019, Representative Ferguson introduced H.R. 989[14], the PARTNERS Act. The PARTNERS Act is bipartisan legislation that supports apprenticeships and work-based learning programs to provide workers with meaningful pathways to better paying jobs, and to connect businesses with workers who have the skills they need. Also, in the 116th Congress, he cosponsored H.R. 1766[15] which establishes a postsecondary student data system.
