January 30th, 2012 by jake · 6 Comments

Bob Henderson – Democratic Metro Councilcritter in the 14th District – says he’s not running for re-election this year.

From a release:

“I have accomplished what I set out to do to help improve the district and the time has come to spend more time with my family,” says Henderson. “I am proud to have helped the Metro Council begin operation under merged government.”

Henderson was one of the founding members of the Metro Council when merged government began in January of 2003. He is a lifelong resident of Valley Station. Bob and his wife Patsy attend church at St. Peters Catholic Church in Valley Station. He is a past member of Riverport Community and St. Timothy Churches.

He is a retired assistant general foreman for CSX Railroad and is retired from Henderson Consulting and Henderson Contracting. He graduated from Valley High School and served in the U.S. Army and the U. S. Marine Reserves.

“I want to thank the people of Southwest Jefferson County who have supported me over all these years. We have focused some attention on areas where government has made a difference and have cleaned up some neglected areas,” says Henderson. “It’s time for someone new to come forward and serve the people of the district.

Who will take his place?

    He announced this in the fall, don’t know why this is news today. Why do you think so many Rs and Ds have already filed for the 14th, cause they knew it was an open seat.

    It’s “news” because he released his first extensive statement about it.
