Jerome Evans announces his bid for Minneapolis City Council in the 12th Ward. Current Ward 12 Council Member Andrew Johnson is not seeking reelection.
"In Minneapolis we work hard and our values are in the right place. We’re committed to creating a stable future for our families and our community, and every day we get up and do our part to create that brighter future," says Evans. "We deserve a city that reflects our commitment to justice, safety, liberation, and sustainability. I’m running to make sure that the decisions made at our City Hall align with our values."
Evans extends an invitation to his official campaign kickoff at Venn Brewing at 11 a.m. on Dec. 3, where he will discuss his vision for "a Minneapolis that’s committed to justice and safety, protecting our health and environment, supporting local business, eliminating racism, and inspiring transformative change."
Jerome Evans works in marketing and communications for a program of public, nonprofit Minnesota Service Cooperatives, and he is the executive producer and host of Bottomless Coffee with Jerome on MCN6. He earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2006. Evans served on the Board of the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association (NENA) from 2017 to 2021.
