Evans wants D.C. council chair

By Washington Post editors

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.

Stay with the D.C. Wire for more details.

No vote, no support, no signs, no signature on the petition for Evans.

I will not vote for D.C. Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans. Jack is in bed with big business and his bank account is fat because of it.

the only downside of gray in the mayor's race is that it opens up the possibility of a council chairman evans.

I think Jack has done a great job in Ward 2 and would make a good Chair.
