Meet the Mayor

Mayor Steve Austin
Steve Austin is a life-long resident of Henderson. A graduate of Holy Name High School and Henderson Community College, he furthered his education at (then) Evansville College and later the Harvard School of Business regional campus sessions.

Steve grew up on the streets of downtown Henderson and learned to love the area while living in his early years in a six-family apartment house at 327 North Main (now the LandN Bed and Breakfast).

Before becoming Mayor he was employed by Henderson's daily newspaper, "The Gleaner," for more than 40 years, working in nearly every area of the business after starting in the sports and news department, including 22 years as publisher.
