Those Who Know Henry Respect His Energy, Compassion and Vision
As Henry’s fiancée, I want to share with you what I know about Henry Klein.
For as long as I’ve known Henry, he has talked about the need for a new kind of leadership for this city. I see Henry as someone who understands the needs of people in ways that career politicians cannot. So it came as no surprise when he told me that he was considering a run for the mayor’s office.
When Henry dedicates himself to a goal, there is really no stopping him. Henry invests his energies into his work and his volunteer efforts with tremendous success. He is dedicated to making Kansas City a great place to live, to work, to raise a family, to own a small business and to pursue the American Dream.
I greatly admire Henry’s courage and the strength of his convictions. He understands the challenges in being Mayor and I know he is ready for the task.
Henry is kind, thoughtful and dedicated. He offers Kansas City voters real-world experience and new ideas. I believe that once you get to know Henry, you will think so too.
