Galveston County Commissioner Ken Clark is the senior member of Galveston County Commissioners Court. Ken Clark, and his wife, Sherry, have made their home in Galveston County for the past 25 years, where they’ve raised their seven children. He owns a business consulting firm and desktop publishing and printing company. Ken invests his time and experience in many community organizations, including local RotaryClubs, area Chambers of Commerce, and local Policemen’s Associations.
Ken Clark first began working on infrastructure issues in the early 1990’s, when he served first as member, and then as President of Galveston’s M.U.D. Board No. 6. Ken remains staunchly conservative, who during his tenure on the board achieved a 34% reduction in his district’s tax rate. Ken continued his public service as Community Liaison in Congressman Steve Stockman’s office, where he got direct insight into the workings of local, county, state and federal government.
In 1998, Ken Clark was elected Galveston County Commissioner of Precinct 4 in north Galveston County, including the communities of Kemah, League City, Clear Lake Shores and Friendswood. Quickly named “The Hardest Working Commissioner in Galveston County,” Ken’s leadership has helped guide and manage north Galveston County through a period of high growth. Maintaining an open-door accountability policy to his constituents, and devoting much time to staying abreast of the infrastructure issues facing his community, Ken was overwhelmingly reelected in 2002. He has since been unopposed and reelected two more times.
Ken currently serves on the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Board of Directors, as well as its Transportation Policy Council, the Conference of Urban Counties’ Policy Council, Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership’s Political Protocol Committee, the Galveston County Mayors and Councilmen’s Association, and the boards of multiple League City TIRZ districts.
Ken Clark is a true conservative who consistently works for lower taxes, smaller government and increased protection for families.
