Campaign themes

Henderson's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Funding & Improving Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe our most valuable resource is our next generation. That's why I believe in fighting for adequate funding for our public schools."

Fair Taxation

  • Excerpt: "I will fight to rid our state of unfair sales tax and move back toward a graduated income based taxation system."

Supporting Small Business & Entrepreneurship

  • Excerpt: "Since entrepreneurship helps the financial well-being and image of our state, we must encourage these people and offer them incentives to start businesses and stay in our communities."

Standing Up for the Vulnerable

  • Excerpt: "Our state is not providing the resources necessary to care for the most vulnerable among us. At-risk and special needs youth, the disabled, the impoverished and the elderly all deserve special consideration."

Protecting Labor Rights

  • Excerpt: "Labor unions protect workers, guarantee fair wages and benefits, and help keep skilled laborers employed. These organizations are a piece of America's history and have greatly contributed to making our nation what it is today."
