Henderson will fill the council seat vacated by Rachel Johnson, who was termed out.

Medina’s platform was built around business growth, and especially the water situation in Gardena. He is the Gardena official with the most knowledge in water issues, and is currently working with other local and neighboring city officials to resolve the “black water” problem with the city’s provider, Golden State Water Co.

Henderson set his focus on business growth and generating funds to develop Gardena’s blighted areas. He is a former Planning and Environmental Quality Commissioner.
