Mayor Gray and Councilmember Jack Evans will be the featured speakers at CAG’s annual awards and elections meeting on Thursday, May 29. They will present CAG’s prestigious awards to outstanding community leaders. The reception and meeting will be hosted by historic Dumbarton House at 2715 Q Street.
Councilmember for Ward 2 since 1991, Jack serves as chair of the Council’s Committee on Finance and Revenue, which oversees the District’s finances, including tax policy. In addition to earning a reputation as one of DC’s toughest budget and tax stewards, Jack has used this committee to secure approval of many major legislative tax reforms including: reducing tax rates, simplifying DC’s antiquated tax code and establishing incentives for businesses. His comments on the “State of Georgetown” are always lively and enlightening.
