Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans is currently involved in a probe regarding improper ethical and lobbying actions with the DC Council and government. There has been significant coverage in the Washington Post and other local news sources regarding these serious charges. If you are not aware of this matter, we strongly suggest you investigate these allegations and the actions taken to date by the DC Council.
Councilmember Evans also serves as National Committeeman for the DC DSC, which is an elected position. Several members of the DC DSC have created a resolution asking Mr. Evans to step down from this position.
On May 2, 2019, the members of the DC Democratic State Committee will meet to vote on this resolution.
We want to be clear that the resolution is not asking Councilmember Evans to resign from the DC Council. That is a decision for the voters of Ward 2. The resolution is asking Mr. Evans to step down as our party's DC representative to the Democratic National Committee.
