Anthony Clark — one of three officials who oversee Philadelphia elections — has reached a settlement agreement with the city’s Board of Ethics in a matter involving his brother, Alex, who works in Anthony Clark’s office as a trades helper.
“I have made a choice and that’s my private choice,” said Anthony Clark, chairman of the panel that oversees Philadelphia’s election process. “Thank you very much.”
It was a coup by two of the three commissioners, making themselves co-chairmen of the panel.
Among the hardest-fought races of the 2011 Democratic primary in Philadelphia have been the races for city commissioners — the elected officers who are responsible for running the elections.
