County Legislator Bill Hendrix Announces Re-Election Bid

Oneida County Board of Legislators
Jeanette Lenoir, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Oneida County Legislator Bill Hendrix says he’s running for another term representing the 25th District. Previously, Hendrix–a Republican–decided not to run for re-election due to health concerns.

Hendrix says he supports reducing the county board of legislators however, he says he wants to ensure the people in his district are adequately represented. In a released statement Hendrix said, “As an Oneida County Legislator, I represent an inter-city legislative district and proud people of many ethnic groups, as well as senior citizens and new citizens in our County. Although I do support a reduction of the Board of Legislators, I am determined to ensure that the residents of the 25th District are represented by a Legislator who understands the issues and who will continue to advocate for the best possible opportunities to empower them to see happy and secure lives. Since 1989 I have fought for the people of the 25th District and will continue to do so.”

County Executive Anthony Picente, Jr., recently vetoed the measure that aimed to reduce the board by 4 members. In an effort to cut costs, Hendrix introduced a bill targeting the county’s healthcare program, by requiring Legislators to pay for half the costs of their healthcare benefits, however the bill did not make it out of committee. Currently, County Legislators are responsible for 20-percent of their healthcare coverage, however not all of the officials participate in the County’s healthcare program. If elected, Hendrix will be serving his 12th term in office.
