Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Henry's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Ethics
Excerpt: "The primary problem I see with our current representatives in the Federal and State government is that they have forgotten their roles. Our representatives were intended to be servants of the people."[1]
  • Education
Excerpt: "Education is the cornerstone our community is built on. It seems to me that we need to reform an education system that rewards incompetent teachers and hinders good teachers. "[2]
  • Economics
Excerpt: "The key to economic growth is not putting money into a system; it is leaving money in the system that works (Lower Taxes)."[3]
  • State Sovereignty
Excerpt: "By declaring sovereignty in accordance with the Constitution, we endeavor to reinstall the foundations of strength that once were and soon will be again, the supreme law of our land!"[4]
  • Health Care System
Excerpt: "I have worked in the health care professions for long enough to know that virtually everything that is wrong with medical care is the result of Federal meddling, while virtually everything good that happens in medical care happens at the local, community level."[5]
