Henderson is growing, which is why voting for effective city council members is crucial. With elections around the corner, now is a good time to remind ourselves what the role of a city council member is and why it matters. Learn what a city councilwoman does and what makes for a qualified candidate.
What is a City Council Member?
One City Council member is elected to office to serve in each of the four Henderson wards. This office is a nonpartisan one. The Mayor and Council members address local issues and find productive solutions. The Henderson City Council works together as a legislative body and appoints the City Manager, City Attorney and City Clerk. They work alongside the Mayor who also serves as a Council member and presides over their meetings. Their responsibilities include decisions about local business licenses, land use, city ordinances and expenditures.

The candidate you choose to elect must bring experience that has had a positive impact on Henderson in the past.
Members of the Henderson City Council must understand the issues facing the public. Is the candidate informed and actively making a positive impact?
