The entire experience has turned 23-year-old Jennifer Henderson from an apolitical University of Missouri student into a full-throated activist for the voice of the people against special interests, whom she felt intimidated her.

Last month the Columbia Daily Tribune reported that a snafu by members of the Business Loop 70 “community improvement district” (CID) left the future of a half-cent sales tax increase proposal in the hands of Henderson.
