Why am I running?
Diane is running because she has an in-depth understanding of the needs of the citizens in the counties of District 23. She is an advocate for bringing jobs back to her district; improving the successes of public schools, colleges and the universities located in the district; supporting the active and retired military personnel and their families with Fort Gordon in the district; and providing more accessible support to our Senior Citizens.
Diane's top three policy goals include: economic development, education and health care concerns. Diane will work with the local officials and peers in the legislature to form collaboration and bipartisanship concerns for similar achievable goals.
My DFA Values
Diane believes in grassroots campaign that involves community, promotes security and liberty for each citizen. Diane lives in a rural area outside of Augusta, Georgia and knows the values of community for all people. She knows that it is important to respect all people and to include people in all aspects of democracy. As a female pastor, she has had to break barriers and to include all of God's children has never been an issue for her.
My Campaign is People Powered!
Again, Diane's campaign is so grassroots that she has to build upon precepts upon precepts. There are eleven counties, with about 100 mile radius, in the rural area and TEAM Evans is having to have to build multi-teams of several counties in order to build collaboration and carry out the campaign plan to each targeted home. As a member of the Progressive Democrats, we use a lot of their concepts to spread the message of the Campaign out to the branches.
