Evans was first elected to the council in 1991.

D.C. Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) made his campaign for mayor official today.

It has been known for several weeks now, and was alluded to during Politics Hour Friday on The Kojo Nnamdi Show. Evans finally made his run official today, speaking outside Le Diplomate restaurant at the corner of 14th and Q Streets NW.

Evans joins fellow council members Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6) and Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) in the list of candidates. Current Mayor Vincent Gray has not said whether he will run for re-election, and his 2010 campaign is still the subject of a federal investigation.

Evans last ran for mayor in 1998.
