     I was disappointed to see that Candidate Henderson did not list his income from Hook, Line, and Sinker, an Oakley business on his Statement of Economic Interest Form 700. Henderson has repeatedly stated over the years that he manages the Hook, Line, and Sinker. Yet, he failed to list the income on the Form 700 to be a candidate for the City Council, nor on the Form 700 submitted when he became a Planning Commissioner for the City of Oakley. However, that is an issue to be resolved by the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) in the future.
