Harris County Judge Ed Emmett has scheduled a news conference this morning to introduce
and swear in his appointee to replace the late El Franco Lee as Harris County Precinct 1
commissioner. The judge and new commissioner will be available for questions after the
Commissioner Lee died Jan. 3 at 66 years of age after more than 30 years in office.
Under state law, Emmett designates Lee’s replacement to serve through Dec. 31, 2016.
Harris County Democratic Party officials will designate Lee’s replacement on the November
2016 ballot and, because no other candidates filed for election, that designee will be
elected to serve through Dec. 31, 2020.
