About Eric:

Eric Henry has strong ties to Alamance County, where he’s lived since he was four years old. A thread that has stayed consistent since his youth there growing a vegetable garden behind his family’s Front Street Home is his passion for sustainable food and fiber systems.

Eight years ago, he and his wife of over 30 years moved from Burlington to Snow Camp to get his hands back in the soil. Snow Camp has been the perfect platform for him to continue to educate himself on agricultural challenges the area is currently facing. In 1978, his entrepreneurial journey began when Henry was a sophomore at NC State University studying agriculture and looking for a way to make extra income while in school. The t-shirt business he started merged with TS Designs soon after, and he’s been with the company over 40 years now.

“Today, the issues have only gotten worse–a broken health care system, a minimum wage still stuck at $7.25, an agricultural system that has failed our farmers, and a blind eye turned to the impact of climate change. We also need to focus on things that will build vibrant communities, from improving our schools and transportation systems, to providing better access to high speed internet. No one person or party has all the answers. The answers lie within our community and we can start by at least agreeing we have challenges.”

Entering this race to open up conversations about the challenges and opportunities our community and state face, and to bring people together in this time of division, Henry says his campaign will focus on issues, not parties or personalities: “I know the path to victory will be tough, but for me, victory will be working to bring our community closer together and working across party lines to address these challenges with constructive solutions.”

Give Your Time at Election Time.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE
