Mark Henry should be fired

Mark Henry has been a disaster as county judge, especially for the residents of Galveston.

After Hurricane Ike, Henry left the only public boat ramp in Galveston unusable until a group of fisherman finally repaired part of the pier. The rest of the pier remains unusable almost six years later.

Henry also left Washington Park completely unusable post-Ike, but he did pay to have it fenced off. The costs of repairing the park were likely near the cost of putting a fence around it so our residents or visitors could not utilize it. A private foundation finally stepped up to repair the park he chose not to repair.

Henry also refused to pave the seawall. It’s the first time that Galveston County has refused to pave this critical road. Henry has done nothing to further the economic development of Galveston County as Cheryl Johnson, our tax assessor-collector, has pointed out.

I am urging both Republicans and Democrats to join me and fire Mark Henry by voting for Michelle Hatmaker for Galveston County judge. Hatmaker will make an excellent county judge.
