Rochester City Council member Malik Evans surprised many people with his landslide win over Mayor Lovely Warren in the Democratic primary in June. Facing no opposition on the ballot in the November general election, he now has a clear path to becoming Rochester’s next mayor.
What is Evans’ vision for Rochester under his leadership? How will he address the wave of violence Rochester has experienced and restore trust between police and the community? How will he continue downtown revitalization and spur the city’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic? What actions will he take to improve Rochester’s chronically underperforming public schools and reduce economic inequality?
On Tuesday, Oct. 12, the Rochester Beacon will discuss these questions and more with Evans in a one-on-one conversation. The event—from noon to 1 p.m., live on Zoom—is free to attend, but registration is required.
Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC is gold sponsor of the event.
Evans, a financial wellness manager at ESL Federal Credit Union, focused his primary campaign on the theme of building bridges and emphasizing his long record of community involvement and leadership. A Rochester native, Evans attended the University of Rochester. The youngest person ever elected to the city school board, he served as president of the board for three terms. He was first elected to City Council in 2017.
In his victory speech after his mayoral primary election win, Evans said “tonight is the true beginning of our journey together to put Rochester in the upper echelon of U.S. cities, where it belongs.”
This Rochester Beacon event will be the first opportunity for the Rochester-area community to hear Evans discuss in depth the next steps of that journey.
