    January 8, 2020 | For Immediate Release

    WASHINGTON, DC — In response to Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans’ announcement that he is resigning from the DC Council effective January 17, 2020, DC Democratic Party Chair Charles Wilson released the following statement:

    “Jack’s resignation is in the best interest of the DC Council and the District of Columbia. It is time to turn a page and begin the long process of restoring trust and accountability to our government. As Democrats elected to our positions, we must never lose sight of the honor and privilege we have to serve constituents in our various roles. We owe it to each of them to hold ourselves and every elected official to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. To this end, I hope Jack will also submit to the calls from Party members to resign his position as National Committeeman.”

    During their December 5 general body meeting, the DC Democratic Party passed a resolution encouraging Evans to step down from his position as National Committeeman. In this role, Evans is slated to represent the District of Columbia at the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
