Bill Evans, 53, is an Army veteran who was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division and who served as a police tactical assault team member in suburban Cleveland.

He currently works as a labor law attorney who represents management.  Evans received endorsements from departing Assemblyman Chris Birch who voted for AO-37 and Mayor Sullivan.

Evans says AO37 saves the city money and “puts the authority and responsibility for the budgets where it belongs with the administration and the assembly.”

Evans says fences with unions need to be mended before AO-37 can work to its full capacity.

Evans is opposed by Pete Nolan and Bruce Dougherty
