Councilor Skip Henderson Announces Run for Mayor

Henderson Elected 6 times, Current Budget Chairman

About 75 people surrounded City Councilor Skip Henderson as he made his bid for Mayor public.

Some of those supporters questioning his sanity.

“Somebody said if this were an intelligence test, you might not have passed,” Henderson said jokingly.

But his coworkers and fellow city leaders beamed at the news saying experience matters when it comes to running the Mayor’s office.

Judy Thomas told First News his fellow Councilors have confidence in Henderson because he knows Columbus, the issues and more importantly serves as Budget Chairman.

After more than 2 decades of service one thing he’s still adjusting to on the campaign trail is social media, notoriously unfriendly territory for political hopefuls.

Henderson said he welcomes feedback and questions about his candidacy for Mayor.
