Did Jack Evans Flip-Flop on the parking issue?

We have already commented that Jack Evans is a failed leader when it comes to the parking issue in Logan Circle, but we would also like to point out that he is also inconsistent on the very issue that he ducks and hides from. The following comes from the dcwatch website listing Jack Evans' accomplishments in Logan Circle for the 1999/2000 year.
* Parking Task Force members, convened by Jack, have been reviewing existing regions and working on changes that will create more spaces for residents. Their report will soon be presented to the community. Jack has also supported creative solutions like angle parking where neighbors have called for more space.

* Budget money for additional parking enforcement officers will keep out-of-neighborhood cars off our streets, and Jack is working to secure those funds.
Now compare the request for more parking enforcement officers for the intended purpose to "keep out-of-neighborhood cars off our streets" with his recent statement about the Logan Circle parking issue: "I think the mayor has done the right thing to put together a task force to see if they can try to work this thing out."

What exactly does that mean? Did the right thing? For whom? Not Logan Circle residents who are the people Jack Evans is suppose to care about. Why not mention that the community has worked long and hard to come up with a solution and has already had a task force to look at this issue? I guess he does not know. Being out of touch will do that to a politician.

Evans is a joke. I didn't know he actually called for enforcement back in 2000, but it doesn't shock me that he reversed himself when the churches became the issue.

Interesting that Jack Evans hasn't be involved on such an important issue to the Logan community. I wonder if his absence has alot to do with the churches?

I have never liked Evans or his brand of play it safe politics.
