Las Vegas, NV - Demonstrating growing community support coalescing behind Steve Evans’ grassroots campaign for the Las Vegas City Council, over 30 leaders from Ward 3 neighborhoods today released a group letter endorsing the Planning Commission chair.
“I am proud to have earned the support of so many important community leaders,” Evans said.“For over 17 years as a resident of Ward 3 I have dedicated my adult life to the protection and preservation of our neighborhoods. As a member of the Las Vegas City Council, I will continue to be an energetic and passionate voice for the established neighborhoods as well as the emerging ones in our Ward.”
Speaking on behalf of the neighborhood leaders who signed the letter, Gregory Brown, past president of the Southridge Neighborhood Association, said, “Steve has devoted most of his professional, and personal, life to making government work to improve quality of life for those who most need, and deserve, it. He knows, literally, whose labor and whose love built our homes and our city. He's got a far-reaching vision for urban redevelopment combined with a fundamental and heartfelt understanding of what it is to work for a living, to struggle to feed a family or hold onto a home, and to work with neighbors to get attention paid to the workaday problems that would otherwise get ignored in a place like Las Vegas.”

Evans is the current Chair of the Las Vegas Planning Commission, where he has served since 2001. A native Nevadan who grew up in a working family, and a resident of Ward 3 for over 17 years, Evans has dedicated his adult life to the protection and preservation of the neighborhoods in his Ward. He has also been a powerful force in the cultural and commercial renaissance of Downtown Las Vegas. Mayor Oscar Goodman recognized this, appointing Evans to the Board of Trustees of the Neon Museum and to the 2020 Master Plan Steering Committee.
