The Westside Republican, who is running for a third-term on the Council, will face fellow Republican Joseph Baker in the Primary and, so far, Francisco Islas in the fall. McHenry, of course, drew the ire of many Democrats when she testified against keeping the At-Large City-County Councillors during the SEA 621 debate by saying that the four countywides were "anonymous" and unknown to their constituents.
My friend, Paul Ogden, has stated in the past that McHenry is good at retail politics, and you can expect her to work the district hard. She will have to. While it does contain areas she currently represents, it also seems to have been expanded to include areas to the north and south of her current boundaries. District 6 appears to be represented by Democrats Ed Delaney, Karlee Macer, and Vanessa Summers in the Indiana House.
Democrat Francisco Islas is filed in the district. If you believe the maps and the numbers, Islas will give McHenry all she wants in that district. Hopefully, he elects to work the district as hard as McHenry will.
I still think it would have been funny if Leroy Robinson, one of those At-Large Councillors she railed against, would have filed against her in the 2015 election.
