Shovel Patrol: Jack Evans
Washington City Paper embarked Sunday afternoon upon an SUV-assisted inspection of various notable persons' sidewalks. Did they comply with their civic duty to clear walkways for pedestrians within eight daylight hours after the snowfall ended?
Position: Ward 2 councilmember
Address: 3141 P St. NW (Georgetown)
Observations: Truly a wondrous job from the council's longest-serving member. The frontage in front of Evans' Georgetown home was meticulously cleared from the edge of the house itself nearly to the curb. No other person surveyed Sunday offered pedestrians such a wide berth—and on a sometimes tricky brick surface, no less. Plus, Evans did it all himself. "I'm from Pennsylvania," he said after answering his doorbell. "Of course I shoveled it myself!"
