LG Henderson’s statement on 3rd District Court decision

“Today’s decision is a win for the rule of law. We appreciate the Court’s order denying the motion to halt the CD2 special election, questioning the venue, timing, and, most importantly, merits of the case.

“Lawsuits, such as this one, that are driven by politics and false accusations instead of facts, are an enormous waste of government resources and taxpayer money. We look forward to this case being dismissed entirely and encourage the petitioners to withdraw any further costly litigation. 

“In the meantime, we will continue to faithfully execute the law and administer the special election.”
