Evans wants D.C. council chair
D.C. Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) said Wednesday he’s “definitely running” for council chairman in the September Democratic primary.
Evans will most likely face Council member Kwame Brown (D-At large), who has also been working the phones in recent days to try to line up support. But other candidates could also emerge.
Neither Brown nor Evans would have to give up their council seats to seek the chairman’s office. The current chairman, Vincent P. Gray (D), announced Tuesday he will challenge Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) instead of seeking reelection.
