Yes!!! You might say they are hiring. Tell them your gonna move a business to town. Tell them you are a multi million dollar co. who will hire thousands of local people,that will be an easy sell believe me.Feed the board at Getty's Grill and they'll throw money at you.

But did you know this??? Here is the big catch that nobody knows about...... They give money to company's to grow with a understanding they are to pay it back over a period of time. But! We as tax payers! we have to pay it for them while they don't pay back a dime!!! They keep all the money that is being made while we have to pay it for them!! Prime example.... Galyean Equipment! That's why the Rich get richer and we stay where we are at!! They are using us!

Move somewhere else if you do not like it!!! Move to a town that does not promote growth!!! Companies that bring in employees, and hire people from our town, and out of town, are helping our entire community! These new Hendersonites are spending money in our town on everything from Walmart to the small businesses, which keeps others with a job. Very proud of the job they are doing!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Look into how Galyean Eq got loads of money and then Hedco Dir's kid got a job with Galyean. Also ask around how Hedco Dir barely works part time and makes $85k a year.
yep

You are so right! That's the only reason why J.Henderson has a job there now. He was part of the deal! Give Galyean money to grow! And the only extra person that he hired was..... J.Henderson! That's the only reason he has a job

This is just a crying shame! As much as that job position pays, Henderson could have a very experienced person with a successful track record. A forward thinking leader that would move business and jobs to the forefront in the region.

Why does her board love and protect her? They are all businessmen that should know better. Are they all on the take?
yea

Because they get what they want as well and their friends!

City of Henderson has a track record of not retaining people who get things done and making sure we keep the people in positions that have little to show.
