Henderson says growing our small businesses is key to growing Little Rock’s economy.
“When you look at big business, your big restaurant chains, or your big box retailers, most of the time they take small business away from success; and the small business ends up having a bigger impact on the local economy than these large businesses, ”says Henderson.
He hopes that if elected, the first thing he can accomplish will be better communication across the city, which he says will do more and create long-term solutions.
“You see, there is a lot of conflict, a lot of people disagreeing, a lot of arguments. There is a lack of trust between the town hall and the board of directors,” said Henderson.
THV11 contacted several times to set up an interview with Mayor Frank Scott Junior, but his office did not set aside time for us to sit down with him. He didn’t say whether he would run again or not.
