Jack Evans Report

Redistricting is a difficult job and this year has been no exception. Federal law allows a deviation in Ward population of plus or minus 5 percent, which gave us a range of 71,455 - 78,976 residents within which to work. The District’s population increased by 29,664, or 5.2 percent, between 2000 and 2010.

Where has the time gone?

After 20 years on the council, it's a good time for reflection.

The Jack Evans Report
