Headline Surfer believes Henry, 46, who cares for six children, ages 8-17, four of them adopted, and who who calls herself "Supermompreneur," would be an asset on the commission in the zone 5 seat her older brother, Patrick Henry, now holds.  

Patrick Henry will vacate the seat, after today's general elections because he's running for a seat in the Florida House. Because is municipal term runs foe two more years, whoever wins the zone 5 seat in today's general elections, will serve the remaining two years and then a new election will be held in 2018. Her opponent is 27-year-old Mykal Tairu, a Bethune-Cookman University graduate.

Dannette Henry would work with another older Henry sibling on the city commission, if elected today, Mayor Derrick Henry.

And speaking of mayors, here is what Derrick Henry's predecessor, has to say about her ability to meet the municipal demands of the part-time elected post.

"Dannette Henry is ready to serve Daytona Beach on day one," said Glenn Ritchey, former mayor of Daytona Beach. Her vision of expanded use of our community centers for senior citizens and her emphasis on smart growth and infrastructure improvements are evidence that she has the right priorities and is ready to serve."
