Interview with Jim Henley

I was very pleased to see that Jim Henley got into the race for Harris County Department of Education Trustee this year. I thought he ran a fine campaign for Congress against John Culberson in 2006, with his better-than-expected showing helping to pave the way for Michael Skelly. I knew this was going to be a good year to run in Harris County as a Democrat, so I thought this race afforded him a good chance to get that opportunity to serve. And when the two long-term and generally well-respected incumbent trustees were knocked off in the GOP primary by a couple of right-wing ideologues, well, I was really glad that the Democrats had a couple of solid progressive professional educators in Henley and Debra Kerner there to challenge them. I had a lively chat with Henley, and I hope you'll enjoy it.
