  • Henderson supports families, LANL

    Council candidate Kristin Henderson wants to give a voice to citizens who do not have the time to advocate for themselves. 

    “I’ve felt for a long time that there’s a large group of people in town who don’t really feel represented on the council, in particular families, but not exclusively families,” Henderson said. 

    Henderson is currently a real estate agent for Re/Max who has worked with tech startups and she is also a lawyer.
