City of Rochester Councilman Malik Evans comes to us with a long record of community involvement and leadership in the Rochester area. His service to the Rochester community began when he was just a teen growing up in Rochester and attending Wilson Magnet High School. Malik initiated the City-County Youth Council to help get young people in Monroe County involved in community service.
In 2003, he became the youngest person ever elected to the Board serving as Board President from 2008 through 2013 and has worked tirelessly to ensure that students in Rochester had access to the same opportunities that he had.
Evans has spent a career in finance, currently working at ESL Federal Credit Union, and offered his expertise as a member of many boards and committees including; the Charitable Distributions Committee at the Rochester Area Community Foundation, Hope Hall School Board of Directors, to name a few. Malik is a graduate of the University of Rochester and has a Master of Science in Management from Nazareth College.
Malik's latest challenge is running after his young sons, who serve as daily reminders that we must create a brighter future for the coming generation.
