Statement from Patrick Kennedy: For the Good of the Ward, Councilmember Evans Must Resign

Councilmember Evans has failed to account for his actions, has lied repeatedly, and his pending removal from the Finance Committee chairmanship makes him unable to serve and deliver results for the residents of Ward 2. As evidence of corruption mounts by the day, capped by this morning's FBI raid, there is only one possible takeaway: It's time to resign.

I urge him to finally put his constituents' interests above his own and resign before the Council's summer recess, to diminish the effect of Ward 2 losing its representation on Council -- because for practical purposes, it already has.
