Mayor Evans, fully understands that no one person can do anything without the help of a great team of fellow councilpersons and a talented staff.

Thank you Mansfield!

I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support.  I would like to thank our entire team of individuals who have worked behind the scenes.  I would like to thank my wife and my entire family, the Bethlehem Church family, and each and everyone of you who have voted for me.  To those that didn't vote for me I would like to say we had some outstanding candidates for Mayor of Mansfield.  I definitely would like to thank Brent Newsom, George Fassett, and Terry Moore and I look forward to working with them in the future. 

 

We are blessed in the city of Mansfield to have a good team of people, throughout our community, who works toward the good of the citizenry.  I hope that while I get the opportunity to serve you, that I get to demonstrate to you that you are the first priority of the Evans administration. 

Congratulations to Todd Tonore and Tamera Bounds on their wins to the Mansfield City Council.  I look forward to working together with some outstanding individuals; Casey Lewis, Larry Broseh, Julie Short, Chief Mike Leyman, each of you who make up the Mansfield City Council.  We also look forward to working with our City Manager and his staff, Joe Smolinski.  I want to thank the outgoing Mayor David Cook for the outstanding job he has done for our city and we look forward to working with him as our State Representative in District 96.
