Saying he cares too much about the city to be a distraction, Mack Henry Allen resigned on Thursday from membership on the Ethics Commission and South End Neighborhood Revitalization Zone, following disclosure he’s listed on a Texas sex offender registry. Allen, who has spoken openly about his drug past, told the Connecticut Post he should not be listed as a sex offender. “I never committed an act against anyone that is sexual in nature.”

“I care too much about the city and the great things that are happening to unjustly serve as a distraction,” Mack Henry Allen Jr., 49, said Thursday, his wife, Kesha, and pastor, Bishop Derrick Calhoun, at his side.
Allen became caught up in a widening state and local probe into how his former employer, Family Urban Schools of Excellence, went about staffing Dunbar when his past felony drug convictions and the Texas registry listing were shared this week.
