Issues

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

Protecting Labor Rights
