Jack Evans: Ineptness still going Strong

Different day, but same old stuff on Jack Evans' website. We guess the production "Where Eagles Fly" needs more hype than other community concerns. Oh, well again nothing new coming from Mr. Evans. The guy is truly a piece of work.
If you have not had the chance to make it over to the Lincoln Theater for the must see production of "Where Eagles Fly", a journey into Shaw's rich history and tradition, you only have until April 19 - so make room in your calendar. Written by Shaw resident and local playwright Carole Mumin, "Where Eagles Fly" illustrates the importance of preserving and passing along the legacies of the communities in which we live.

The play uses music, dance and verse to tell the story of the incredibly rich legacy of Shaw, a neighborhood that has been an integral part of the modern development of African American culture. Over 10 years ago, the play made a successful run at the Lincoln Theatre. Now it's back and a must see for everyone, but it will close soon.

The Shaw neighborhood has experienced many changes since the early '90's and it's important that its history is memorialized and honored. It's important to support our own and I hope everyone will come out and see this magnificent production. For additional information about the play and to purchase tickets, visit www.whereeaglesflyllc.com or call 939.0560.

Jack Evans Director of Communication emailed me that he saw my blog and asked if he should resond there (on the blog) or to me directly. I told him I was glad the CM was checking into his constituents' vision of his advocacy for us through various methods (blogs) and that his opinion poll numbers must be comparable with George Bush. I further told him we need someone who will take a stand and do what is right--the task force should not be trashed in favor of another task force and more delay. I further said that perhaps the CM should respond in his newsletter (which comes out every Friday) but that we needed action not rhetoric. Here is his response: "Our newsletter is weekly -- We take off one week during the spring recess, that is why there was not one last week. This week's newsletter WILL NOT [EMPHASIS ADDED] touch on the parking issue. However, we will cover that issue in an upcoming newsletter." Okay, maybe when pigs fly!

I post on the DCist about Jack Evans, but I thought I would add my two cents here.

I called Metcalf and he better not be making alot of money cause he certainly doesn't deserve much. He makes Jack Evans look like an a-s. However, that isn't too hard seeing Evans does a good job himself not taking up Logan residents causes. He is a horrible Councilmember and I hope he gets voted out of office ASAP!!!
