Malik Evans For Rochester City Council Our City Our Future
Malik Evans’ City Council Run to Focus on Neighborhoods, Jobs and Youth
ROCHESTER – Four simple words express Malik Evans’ newly announced campaign for a seat on the Rochester City Council. The “Our City, Our Future” theme embodies Evans’ years of public service and his business career, both of which are dedicated to community transformation.
“Our best ideas come from family, neighbors, friends, colleagues and even detractors. In this national political climate of discord and exclusion it is more important than ever to unite as a community to create a future in which we can all prosper,” Evans said.
As a Rochester City Council member, Evans will focus on neighborhoods, jobs and youth. “I will work to strengthen our city by creating a Rochester where neighborhoods are safe and strong, good-paying jobs are the standard, and our children and youth have the opportunity to grow into contributing members of society.”
Evans believes strongly that the transformation he envisions can best be accomplished best through City government. As the youngest person ever elected to the Rochester Board of Education (in 2003), Evans has focused his public service on improving the lives of children through education.
“Of course we need a school district where children can succeed and grow into the finest adults they can be. But the school district alone will not lift the City. Our children need parents who can provide the financial support they need and neighborhoods where they are safe to play outside. I believe that can best be accomplished by City government increasing the number of well-paying jobs available and ensuring that neighborhoods are strong,” Evans said, explaining his decision to run for City Council.
Evans and his wife are parents to two young sons, and that further reinforced his decision to run for Council. “The adults of this city are our present, and all of our children are the future. I am confident that we all want a city where the future is a shining beacon of hope,” the life-long city resident said.
“I look forward to talking to voters in the City of Rochester to communicate my vision for a vibrant Rochester and hear their hopes and concerns about the future of our City.”
