10 Questions with ... Jack Evans



Currently in his seventh term representing Ward 2, Jack Evans is one of the most decorated and influential members of the DC City Council.  Holder of an economics degree from Wharton and a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Evans started out at the SEC, and currently serves as counsel at Patton Boggs.  Recently, Evans graciously took the time to offer us a glimpse into his always-busy day-to-day.

1. What's a typical day for you?  

I get up at 6:00am, get the kids up, eat breakfast, (I used to drive them to school but now they have their learner’s permits) and the 3 triplets take turns driving themselves to school (as I am in the passenger seat, of course). Once I get into the office, depending on the schedule, I have a series of meetings throughout the day or a legislative hearing/legislative session. I go home, pick up the kids, try to have dinner with them and several evenings a week, I attend community meetings/events in the evening, and my day ends around 9:30.

2. What or who is your biggest influence?

Personally – my parents. Professionally – Abraham Lincoln & John Kennedy

3. What neighborhood do you live in?

Georgetown

4. What is your biggest DC pet peeve?

Nothing!

5. What is the #1 most played song on your iPod?

"Mack the Knife"



6. Favorite DC haunt?

Café Milano

7. What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

Read the paper and go for walks in the park.

8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Washington, DC.

9. If you couldn't be a councilman, what would you be?

Rock singer.


10. Name one thing most people don't know about you.

I’m an open book!

Why didn't you ask "Why is it you seem to be more concerned about your perks, like parking on Inauguration Day or tickets at Nationals Park, than your constituents?

Saw this jerk cut off a pedestrian in a crosswalk this morning, then make an illegal u-turn through the Penn Ave. bike lanes, so he could park in front of the Wilson building. Real classy for a public office holder.

Why wasn't he asked 'how much tax payers money are you willing to spend to lure the Redskins back to DC?' This is wasted money and I totally oppose tax payer money being spent to lure sports teams to the city.

Interesting official but the questions you asked are like questions in a slam book. If it was me asking questions, I would ask him about issues in the community.

He's just as corrupt as the rest of the bunch. Ego centric self serving individuals who are more interested in their perks than the people of the District of Columbia. Sad.

Sounds sounds as if people are just jealous. DC is a joke and is a banana republic.
