KEMAH — County Commissioner Ken Clark, who already is facing a state ethics commission investigation and is the target of a special prosecutor’s inquest, now faces a new allegation.
This time the complaint comes from a fellow Republican who claims Clark’s longtime assistant alleges the commissioner instructed her to conduct political activities on county computer and Internet systems and on county time.
Former Justice of the Peace Mark Foster, who is seeking the Precinct 1 county commissioner’s seat, filed a complaint with Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady on Monday. Foster claims Clark’s former assistant Celia Mabry informed him that she had been told by Clark to conduct opposition research on Foster to benefit Ryan Dennard, Foster’s opponent in the July 31 Republican Party runoff.
