Evans to Skip Special Election for Ward 2 Council Seat

Former D.C. Councilman Jack Evans has decided to skip the June 16 special election for the Ward 2 council seat from which he resigned earlier this year amid an ethics scandal, but will still attempt to regain his spot in the upcoming Democratic primary.

Evans initially planned compete in both the June 2 primary and the special election for the seat, which he vacated on Jan. 7 after serving since 1991. His departure spurred the D.C. Board of Elections to hold the special election to fill the position for the rest of 2020.

He resigned under the threat of expulsion from his council colleagues for various ethical violations. However, Evans said late Wednesday he would only run in the primary.

“I have decided it is best not to seek to run for the position which I resigned from in January and instead focus on a new start for the next four years,” he said. “Not running in the special is also a way of showing my sincere regret for the mistakes I made.”
