WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans tells FOX 5 that he will not serve another term as Metro Board Chairman.
"Generally, the Chair rotates every year," Evans explained. The Councilmember noted he has served for three and a half years and added, "time to rotate."
The move comes as Evans faces federal, local and Metro investigations of his conduct both on the D.C. council and as a member of the Metro board.
Evans was reprimanded by the D.C. Council after it was disclosed he'd used the council email system to solicit job for himself, from law firms that do business with D.C. government. In the emails Evans touted his connection to both D.C. government and Metro. He is also under scrutiny for his dealings with a digital sign company which Evans accepted and then returned stock from.
Following the reprimand vote in the Council, Evans apologized to the Council for his actions regarding the matter.
