Does Ward 2 D.C. Councilmember and mayoral hopeful Jack Evans have a “vision” for the city? Evans thinks so—-his speech on Muriel Bowser turf today mentioned the word “vision” three times, both the quality of his and the alleged failure of Bowser’s. The Post editorial board disagrees, citing his lack of a “robust vision” as one reason they endorsed Bowser instead of Evans.
If the Post wants vision, Evans will show them vision. In a letter to the editor, Evans writes that he’s got vision for miles:
Here is my vision: I want to establish the District as a great city of the world, with a robust economy and a public school system whose graduates go on to achieve great things. My vision is to establish a shared mission between the government and private sector to prepare citizens of the District for economic opportunities and to address major issues such as affordability, public safety and the achievement gap between white and black students.
