I have known Evan all our lives (55 of our 56 years). I know him to be a good man, an intelligent and passionate fighter for the things he believes in. I also know, having spoken to him often about the issues that the board has dealt with over his prior three terms, that your kids and their success are all that he is concerned with.
I know it means a lot to him to serve as a school board member and I know he takes the "job" very seriously. Without trying to sound cliche, nothing really makes him feel better then doing service for the people of his community.
Whether you agree with him or not on a particular issue, know that your children are better off with Evan involved in looking after their best interests.
You can believe in him, as I do.
